Pakistan Navy ship Zulfiqar (with embarked helo) participated in Passage Exercise (PASSEX) with the Japanese Maritime Self Defense Force (JMSDF) ship Onami. Both the ships are presently operating in the vital area of the Gulf of Aden as part of international efforts to counter piracy and ensure the security of international shipping.

According to a press release issued by Navy’s Director General Public Relations in Islamabad on Tuesday, the Passage Exercise encompassed various operational serials with the aim to enhance interoperability and augment collaborative efforts to ensure maritime security in the region.

PNS Zulfiqar is also undertaking Regional Maritime Security Patrol (RMSP) in the Gulf of Aden. The exercise is the testimony of PN's resolve to provide a secure maritime environment in the global commons for international shipping and contribute towards international efforts to counter illicit activities at sea. 

Pakistan Navy, in line with the government’s policies, has always remained committed to playing its role in ensuring maritime safety and security in the region. The exercise will further contribute in improving the bilateral ties between the Pakistan Navy and JMSDF.
