KHARTOUM, 7th December, 2017 (WAM) -- Units of the UAE Land Forces arrived yesterday at Port Sudan, in eastern Sudan, to participate in the second phase of "Coast Heroes 1," a joint military exercise between the armed forces of the UAE and Sudan.
The units were received by Major General Abdullah Yussuf Abdulhai, Head of the exercise organising committee, and several senior officers from the Sudanese Armed Forces.
The exercise, which will run until 15th December, 2017, is part of series of exercises listed in the training plans of all UAE armed forces units with friendly countries, under a framework of co-operation and co-ordination with the leadership.
The training aims to strengthen military co-operation and joint action and exchange of military knowledge, which will raise the efficiency and readiness of the military to confront the challenges facing the region, as well as enhancing the co-ordination between the Emirati and Sudanese armed forces.
The exercise will include the most advanced military training systems, combat theories on various types of training and advanced weapons, and will involve many joint tactical exercises, as part of the country’s operational readiness development plans and exchanging knowledge with the Sudanese Armed Forces, to achieve the goals of the leadership of the two countries.
The first phase of 'Coast Heroes 1' held last Sunday in the Red Sea State consisted of theoretical work.
