MOSCOW (BNS): The navies of Russia and Norway are planning to conduct a joint naval exercise ‘Pomor-2011’ in May, a media report said.

Both navies will participate in the third series of the joint drill at the Barents and Norwegian Seas.

"The exercise will take place in the Barents and Norwegian Seas, and will include firing of live artillery rounds at simulated surface and aerial targets, anti-submarine warfare drills, anti-piracy operations, and search-and-rescue missions," RIA Novosti quoted Vadim Serga as saying on Thursday.

In 2010, Russia participated in the drill with its Northern Fleet’s large ASW ship Severomorsk, Il-38 ASW aircraft, Su-33 fighters and Ka-27PS helicopters. The Norwegian Navy participated with its frigate KNM Otto Sverdrup, Coast Guard ship Nordkapp, Orion patrol aircraft, F-16 fighters and Lynx helicopters in the drill.
