DUBAI // Two Japanese warships docked in the port of Jebel Ali in Dubai yesterday during maritime exercises with the UAE Navy.
The 140-metre minesweeper tender Bungo and the 60-metre minesweeper Yaeyama will take part in “goodwill training” with the UAE until tomorrow to improve maritime security.
“We stopped in Jebel Ali for supply, crew rest and to conduct the friendly exercise in Dubai for the next couple of days,” said Capt Keiji Yoshida, commander of Division 51.
“This goodwill training strengthens our relationship with the UAE and deepens interoperability between the UAE naval forces and the Japanese maritime self-defence force.”
The goal is to ensure the safety of sea lanes and communications.
