The Egyptian frigate "Suez" and the Spanish frigate "Numancia" conducted on Thursday a joint naval exercise in the Red Sea at Berenice Military Base in the Southern Fleet’s zone.

The drills come as a part of the general command of the Armed Forces' plan to boost military cooperation and exchange expertise with friendly countries.

The naval exercise included carrying out many training activities to enhance the maritime security in the southern Red Sea area in line with the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea.

The training, the second of its type with the Spanish navy in a short period, aims to benefit from the Spanish capabilities in achieving mutual interests and promote military cooperation between Cairo and Madrid.
