EU NAVFOR Train AMISOM’s Marine Unit off Coast of Mogadishu (11.09.2017)

This was the third time this year that EU NAVFOR has had the opportunity to exercise and train with AMISOM forces

BRUSSELS, Belgium, September 11, 2017 – On September 7th crew members from ESPS Rayo continued the regional cooperation EU NAVFOR has established with the AMISOM Marine unit off the coast of Mogadishu.

This was the third time this year that EU NAVFOR has had the opportunity to exercise and train with AMISOM forces. This visit to Mogadishu followed on from ESPS Relampago in February and ESPS Galicia in May.

The training included briefings and exercises on fire fighting, search and rescue, first aid and boarding procedures.

Maritime training with regional partners, such as AMISOM, is an extremely important aspect of Operation Atalanta’s work to deter piracy off the coast of Somalia. The aim is to strengthen cooperation and increase the capability and capacity of regional maritime forces to help seafarers stay safe during their transits across the Indian Ocean and Gulf of Aden.
