>French Carrier in Cyprus

>While French destroyer Jean Bart hangs out in Iskenderun, French Carrier De Gaulle is in Limasol visiting Cyprus. She arrived in Limassol on 12th March will stay until 16th. Most probably later the two ships will join to task force.

According to Famagusta Gazette, while in Cyprus, the French carrier and the National Guard will be carrying out search and rescue exercises, air transport manoeuvres and military drills in the context of a defence agreement signed in 2007 between Cyprus and France.

The visit of Jean Bart seems to have diverged the attention of Turkish media away from the visit of De Gaulle.
