(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) The recently-concluded Khanjar Hadd (Sharp Dagger) naval exercise between the Royal Navy of Oman (RNO), the UK Royal Navy, US Navy and French Marine Nationale, was a 'model example' of how an international taskforce operates, according to UK defence officials. 

The exercise, which was conducted over several days last week, saw a number of vessels from RNO in attendance including the new Khareef corvette Al Shamikh, with support from the Royal Air Force of Oman.

The exercise was held under the patronage of Rear Admiral Rasheed al Raisi, acting commander of RNO, and in the presence of Group Capt Mohammed al Kathiri, commander of Musannah Air Base. Also present during the exercise was Commander Austin Smith, naval and air attach, British Embassy, Muscat, who said it was a 'valuable opportunity' to interact with key allies.

''The exercise was extremely well coordinated by RNO and (is a) model example of how maritime security operations can be conducted as a combined naval taskforce.

''It was a great privilege to attend the day at sea in Al Shamikh and witness personally RNO's professional operation of its newest class of ship. The crews certainly do set a very high standard for others to follow. This exercise was a good opportunity for the Royal Navy to hone its skills alongside great friends,'' said Commander Smith.

Some of the vessels which participated in the exercise included the UK's mine counter measure vessels HMS Quorn, HMS Atherstone, and HMS Shoreham, and the US mine counter measure vessel USS Gladiator. <
