LOOK: French frigate visits PHL

French Navy Ship (FNS) Vendemiaire (F734) with one helicopter onboard docked at Pier 9, South Harbor, Manila early today for a four-day goodwill visit, the Philippine Navy said.

The Philippine Navy said the goodwill visit will involve series of confidence building engagements between personnel of two navies such as shipboard tour, reciprocal receptions and friendly games.

“Such visit is expected to further strengthen the France-Philippines relations which also benefits both armed forces,” the Philippine Navy said.

“The fitting reception bestowed by PN is a manifestation of a sustained promotion of peace and stability, and enhancement of maritime cooperation through naval diplomacy and camaraderie,” it added.
