Marines from Spain and Korea in Somalia counter-piracy Training

Marines from Spain and Korea in Somalia counter-piracy training | Coastweek

OFF SOMALIA -- During their joint counter-piracy patrols in the Gulf of Aden, marines from Operation Atalanta’s flagship, ESPS Galicia, and the Republic of Korea Ship (ROKS), Choi Young, have carried out a range of boarding exercises from their respective warships. Training exercises such as this help to ensure that the marines remain fully trained and prepared to deal with any security incident at sea and serve to strengthen the close co-operation that exists between counter-piracy forces off the coast of Somalia. This maritime cooperation has helped to ensure that Somali-based piracy, that caused so much misery to seafarers just a few years ago, remains suppressed. PHOTO - EU NAVFOR
