Somali Representatives Meet With EU Reps on EU Warship

The European Union has warships?


On Monday 24 June a meeting was held on board the EU Naval Force Portuguese flagship NRP Alvares Cabral, between members of the Somali Federal Government (SFG) and representatives from the European Union. This was the first ever meeting held at sea between the European Union and SFG, with a focus on how both can work together to help strengthen maritime security and economic development in Somalia.

Two other EU Naval Force warships, German frigate FGS Augsburg and Spanish warship, ESPS Numancia, together with a Spanish Maritime Patrol Aircraft, contributed to the preparation and coordination of this important event.
