KARACHI: A German Navy Ship FGS BAYERN (FFG-217) visited Karachi from September 8 till September 12, 2021. The visit was aimed at commemorating the 70 years of bilateral relations between Pakistan and Germany.

A spokesman for the Pakistan Navy said the four-day-long visit of FGS BAYERN (FFG-217) comprised harbour and sea phase. The harbour phase included various events, social calls, visits to prominent places, table top discussions on professional topics, cross ship visits and onboard receptions.

The recent visit of FGS BAYERN proved to be eventful and professionally rewarding for both the navies in addition to furthering of bilateral relations of the two navies.
