The UAE and Bahrain yesterday concluded a joint air force military exercise with the participation of UAE Air Forces and Air Defence and the Royal Bahraini Air Force.
The exercise, ‘Union of Falcons 1 / 2012', comes within the framework of military cooperation and coordination in the field of military expertise and information between the countries. It also falls within the framework of a series of joint exercises carried out between GCC countries to train personnel in the field of planning and managing joint military operations, and activating unified procedures for planning and carrying out these operations.
The joint exercise included training in a number of areas such as air military movement and defence, in addition to tactical manoeuvring, air force operations, and piloting.
Major General Pilot Ebrahim Nasser Al Alawi, Deputy Commander of the UAE Air Force and Air Defence, said that this joint military exercise is in no way linked to current regional and international events. He pointed out that GCC forces were keen on developing military exercises and preparation by continuing to carry out such military exercises that help increase the military preparedness, which complements the march of comprehensive development of all its military units, arms and equipment. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
