OFF SOMALIA -- Crew members from ITS Margottini continued the regional cooperation EU NAVFOR has established with the AMISOM Marine unit off the coast of Mogadishu. Following on from several interactions last year, Margottini’s Italian crew took up the opportunity to patrol local waters off the coast of Mogadishu with the AMISOM unit. Not only did the two Marine units conduct coordinated boat drills, they also exchanged training and ideas on boat safety, maintenance and sea survival. 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. PHOTOS - EU NAVFOR
