Royal Australian Navy ships HMAS Anzac and HMAS Sheean, along with the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) P-8A Poseidon aircraft, exercised with the French units off the coast of Fremantle.

The visit has been co-ordinated with the support of the West Australian government and has been managed in accordance with state and federal COVID-19 regulations.

“Australia and France have a longstanding and co-operative defence relationship, based on shared values and a commitment to promote a prosperous, open and inclusive Indo-Pacific region,” Defence noted in a statement.

“The two navies work closely together in support of maritime security.”
