The Egyptian, British and Italian naval forces have carried out a joint naval drill in the Mediterranean Sea, the Egyptian armed forces said Friday.

"Several Egyptian naval units participated in the drill along with the British RFA Lyme Bay-class landing ship and the Italian frigate Carabiniere," the armed forces said on its website.

The training exercises included implementation of joint tasks, communication under water, supplying ships with fuel, and protecting navel units while crossing dangerous areas, according to the website.

Egypt regularly holds military exercises with Arab, African and Western countries to boost military collaboration and exchange military expertise.

On Dec. 2, Egyptian and French naval forces carried out joint military drills across the Red Sea.

In early November, Egypt started the "Arab Sheild 1" joint drills with forces from Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Kuwait and Jordan at Mohamed Naguib military base, the largest military base in the Middle East and Africa located in Egypt's Mediterranean province of Matrouh.
