ABU DHABI: Sheikh Hamed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Chief of the Abu Dhabi Crown Prince’s Court, attended the closing of the “Zayed 2” joint military exercise in the UAE’s territories, between the UAE Armed Forces and the Egyptian Armed Forces.

The event was also attended by Lt General Hamad Mohammed Thani Al Rumaithi, Chief of Staff of the UAE Armed Forces, as well as several senior officials from the armed forces of both countries.

The aim of the exercise is to emphasise the historic and strategic relations between the two countries to strengthen bilateral military ties, increase their military readiness, develop capabilities and enrich military expertise to achieve the desired integration of the various forces involved in the exercise. It also aims to implement all procedures and carry out required duties with considerable skill on defensive operations and to attack vital points and objectives.

Sheikh Hamed and the audience were briefed on the three stages of the exercise. The first stage involved the arrival of Egyptian forces to the country, the second stage included specialised training for participating forces, and the final stage consisted of a practical statement.

The audience watched the final live ammunition demonstration, with the participation of a number of combat aircraft, artillery units, helicopters, attack helicopters, infantry units, special operations forces and paratroopers.

The exercise also demonstrated a high level of co-ordination and integration of performance, and the various roles of participating military formations, which showed a high level of skill by the participating forces from various military units, including land, sea, air, special operations and parachute teams.

The “Zayed 2” joint military exercise is part of the armed forces training plans, which are continuously implemented to ensure combat readiness, and is considered an extension of the “Zayed 1” exercise that took place between the same two countries in 2014, on the nation’s territories.

The UAE believes in the importance of building new alliances, which serve its supreme strategic interests and ensure its security and stability.
