UAE-led CTF conducts naval exercise

posted on 20/07/2011: 1095 views


A UAE-led Combined Task Force (CTF) has commenced a maritime exercise, code-named Stakenet, in the Arabian Gulf. In May, the UAE assumed command of the CTF 152, a multi-national task force established in 2004 in order to provide Gulf maritime security, co-operation and engagement.

The drill is the largest for the CTF in the region and draws engagement of navies from sisterly countries Saudi Arabia, Bahrain (CTF former commander), Kuwait and Qatar and friendly countries (US, UK and France).

Stakenet also demonstrates the ability of multi-national navies and coast guards to communicate effectively while overcoming language barriers, and their ability to enhance co-operation between various nations that use different operating procedures. The CTF 152 is one of three task forces operated by Combined Maritime Forces (CMF), a 25-nation coalition based in Bahrain. The CTF 152's area of operation encompasses the Arabian Gulf. - Emirates News Agency, WAM
