Operation Atalanta Warship ITS Espero Welcomes Delegates from Bossaso Port Police and Puntland Maritime Police Force on Board
EU Naval Force warship, ITS Espero, invited a delegation from the Bossaso Port Police and Puntland Maritime Police Force on board during EU counter-piracy patrols close to the port of Bossaso.
The meeting enabled officers from EU NAVFOR and Puntland authorities to exchange views on the current piracy threat and the important de-confliction efforts needed to help deter and disrupt attacks off the coast of Somalia.
Meetings with local maritime forces such as this help EU NAVFOR to enhance mutual trust and understanding with local authorities in the fight against piracy.
