Abu Dhabi, May 20th. The activities of the joint military exercise “Zayed 3” which is held on UAE’s soil with the participation of Land Forces units from the UAE and the brotherly Arab Republic of Egypt have recently started, and will continue until May 30th.

The exercise is part of scheduled military programs between the two countries aimed at exchanging military and combat expertise and enhancing the operational readiness of the UAE and Egyptian Armed Forces.

The UAE and the brotherly Arab Republic of Egypt have long-standing strategic relations over decades, reinforced by fraternal harmony and cohesion at the level of leadership of the two countries and a belief in the importance of teamwork between brothers in the face of changes in the security environment and in order to achieve the security and stability of the Gulf region and the Arab states and the well-being of their peoples.

The cooperation between the two countries is based on a legacy of accumulated military experience, solid foundations, and wise and strong political will. The UAE and Egyptian Armed Forces both occupy a leading position at the regional and global levels, with their qualitative and advanced military capabilities and high combat expertise that make them capable of facing various challenges that threaten the security of the region.

The implementation of the joint exercise comes under the exceptional circumstances imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic on the world. However, the ability of all state institutions to deal with, recover and gradually return to the exercise of life in a normal manner enabled the UAE Armed Forces to organize this exercise in accordance with the best practices and health standards followed globally, and as scheduled, to complete the series of exercises included in the training plans between the UAE Armed Forces and the Armed Forces in The Egyptian Arabic Republic.
