British frigate HMS Northumberland landed in the port of Algiers on Sunday (May 6th) for a three-day stopover as part of the reinforcement of bilateral military cooperation between the Algerian and British navies...
The British frigate's captain, Thomas Guy, told the press that the visit aims also at launching a maritime security co-operation programme between the Royal navy and Algeria's maritime forces. The programme is not confined to counter-terrorism efforts or illegal migration, Guy stated. It also includes co-operation in staff training, research and rescue operations.
