Dutch and Swedish sailors on board HNLMS Rotterdam have conducted medical training with local Galmadug Security Forces. The local interaction was in support of a mutual partnership to improve maritime skills within the Galmadug Coastguard.
On completion of the medical training, members of the Coastguard were presented with certificates during an upper deck ceremony. EU NAVFOR congratulates all that took part in a successful exercise and looks forward to the opportunity of working together in the future.
Collaboration between partner nations such as this is an essential part of EU Naval Forces commitment to fighting piracy off the coast of Somalia and keeping seafarers safe.
