Egyptian naval forces left for France on Sunday to take part in a joint exercise with French troops, according to the Egyptian military.
The drill aims to enhance naval security cooperation and exchange expertise between forces of both countries, a military statement said.
The exercise also aims to "get acquainted with different combat doctrines and deal with the latest technologies in combat systems", the statement said.
Since mid-2014, Cairo and Paris have signed a range of arms deals, making France -- alongside the U.S. and Russia -- one of Egypt’s main sources for weapons.
