I had the honour to visit members of our Armed Forces in Iraq, Bahrain and Oman this week. As part of the five-day visit, I officially opened the UK-Oman joint exercise, Saif Sareea 3, alongside Oman’s Minister Responsible for Defence Affairs, His Excellency Sayyid Badr bin Saud bin Harub Al Busaidi.
The security of the Gulf is of the utmost importance to not only regional stability, but to the world’s economic stability.
Our commitment to our international responsibilities in the region is unwavering. Saif Sareea is far more than just a bilateral military exercise, it is a demonstration of our commitment and will leave behind a legacy for decades to come. ??
