Maritime Exercise Kicks Off As Pakistan Navy Ship Arrives in Turkey

ANKARA – For a 12-day multinational maritime exercise, Pakistan’s Navy ship Alamgir arrived in Turkey.
Pakistan Navy said in a statement that the ship entered the Aknaz Naval Base in the Aegean Sea off the coast of Mugla.
Capt. Muhammad Akram said it will participate in the DoğuAkdeniz-19 (Eastern Mediterranean) drill that will run through Nov. 20.
The exercise’s goal is to work in a multi-threat world while giving participants advanced training opportunities, he said.
The drill is also attended by US naval forces, Turkey, India, Canada, Bulgaria, Romania, Italy, Greece, and Spain.
Moreover, “The ship will also engage in Operation Mediterranean Shield, an ongoing East Mediterranean Sea operation undertaken jointly by various regional Allied navies led by the Turkish Navy,” the statement said.
Also involved in exercises conducted by Pakistan are Turkish navy vessels.
“Turkish Navy ships are participating actively in the AMAN series of exercises hosted by the Pakistan Navy,” said the commander.
In February, the naval forces have performed a joint exercise called Turgutreis-III in the Arabian Sea.
