The joint exercise between the armed forces of the Republic of Cyprus and France, which has been conducted in the framework of a bilateral cooperation program, has been successfully completed.

The exercise has been realised within Lefkosia FIR and within part of the national airspace and ground of the Republic of Cyprus. Terrestrial equipment of the National Guard as well as fighter aircrafts of naval cooperation type RAFALE that had been released from the French aircraft carrier Charles de Gaule have participated therein.

The successful conduct of this exercise is a proof of the updated training level and operational readiness of the National Guard and at the same time it indicates the close cooperation of friendly neighboring countries in jointly dealing with modern security challenges and disproportionate threats in the East Mediterranean region.
