The French aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle will be in the Mediterranean for the “Clemenceau 22” mission in February.
As announced, France is developing the air force that forms Task Force 473, around the aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle and its aircraft. The air force will operate until April in the Mediterranean, as part of the “Clemenceau 22” mission.
The deployment of the military underscores, according to a statement from the French Ministry of Defense, the importance that France attaches to freedom of action and movement at sea and in the air.
The air force will include vessels from Allied naval forces within the European Union such as Greece, Belgium and Spain and NATO, such as the US and Canada.
The “Clemenceau 22” mission aims to strengthen France's co-operation with its coastal allies in the Mediterranean, the French Defense Ministry said in a statement.
