  • [01] Multinational 'Dolphin 05' exercise completed successfully

    The multinational exercise codenamed "Dolphin 05", organised by Greece with the participation of almost all "Mediterranean Dialogue" countries for the first time, was completed on Tuesday with absolute success. The exercise was aimed at further strengthening cooperation between the armed forces of the participating countries.

    The hypothetical scenario of the exercise anticipated humanitarian aid being provided for the inhabitants of the island of Gavdos, south of Crete, following an earthquake measuring 7.8 points on the Richter scale.

    The exercise was watched by Defence Minister Spilios Spiliotopoulos, National Defence General Staff chief Panayiotis Chinofotis, Air Force General Staff chief George Avlonitis, the Israeli ambassador to Athens and mlitary delegations from the countries participating in the exercise on board the Israeli corvette Lahav.

    Spiliotopoulos said that Greece organised the exercise with the "Mediterranean Dialogue" countries "so that we can prove once again that cooperation and understanding between governments and countries is what secures the prosperity of peoples", adding that this cooperation will proceed with the holding of more exercises.

    The ambassador of Israel to Athens expressed his satisfaction over the undertaking of the relevant initiative by Greece.

    Forces from Israel, Egypt, Algeria, Jordan, Morocco and Tunisia participated in the exercise. The purpose of "Dolphin 05" was to jointly train forces from the countries participating in humanitarian aid operations.
