King Mohammed VI, Supreme Chief and Chief of General Staff of the Royal Armed Forces, presided over the final “African Lion 2023” planning meeting, which was held in the south of Agadir from April 12 to 16.
According to a statement from the Chief of General Staff of the Royal Armed Forces, representatives of the Royal Armed Forces and the US Armed Forces focused on deciding on the execution procedures for the various activities scheduled within the framework of the 19th edition of the African lion exercise.
Approximately 6,000 soldiers from 20 different countries, including the US, will participate in the 19th iteration of the African Lion partnership.
With the aim of enhancing interventions capabilities and fostering interoperability within the multinational framework, the RAF is in charge of joint operations and maneuvers with other nations in a variety of operational domains, including terrestrial, airborne, aerial, maritime, and CBRN decontamination.
Agadir, Tantan, Tiznit, Kenitra, Bengrir, and Tifnit in Morocco are all planned to host the African lion from May 22 to June 16, 2023.
The exercise improves Moroccan American military co-operation, boosts communication between armed forces of other nations, and increases national security and stability.
