A joint search and rescue exercise between Cyprus and France took place on Friday off the coast of Cyprus.

The search and rescue exercise, dubbed “CYFRA 02/20”, featured the participation of the French frigate ‘La Fayette’, a search and rescue helicopter of the Cyprus National Guard, and specialised Cypriot nurses.

The exercise was conducted in the cooperation framework between the two countries to address search and rescue incidents or emergencies that may arise during activities within Cyprus’ Exclusive Economic Zone.

The drill, coordinated and overseen by the Larnaca Joint Rescue Coordination Center, was the second to take place between Cyprus and France this year.
