Moroccan French naval exercise between Casablanca and Toulon

Morocco and France strengthened their ties with a joint naval exercise.

The Sultan Moulay Ismaïl Sigma frigate last month took part in the 23rd edition of the Moroccan French naval exercise Chebec, with the French frigate La Fayette Courbet.

These maneuvers took place between Toulon and Casablanca, it reports the specialized magazine Cols bleus.

This exercise aims to strengthen joint cooperation between the two countries in case of crisis. The exercise consists of a common training phase at the dock, a zeefase and a tactical phase.

In addition, cooperation in the aviation sector was also on the agenda, in particular through the participation of a French Moroccan F50M and four combat aircraft.
