ESPS Victoria Welcomes Qatari Naval Officer On Board for European Union Counter-Piracy BriefingsDecember 31, 2015 - 09:56
While alongside in Djibouti, EU Naval Force frigate, ESPS Victoria, welcomed a Qatari Navy officer on board.
During his time with the Spanish warship, the Qatari officer will be integrated into the ship’s teams to observe counter-piracy operations in an European warship. He will also be provided with a series of briefings about the different jobs carried out on board.
Agreements such as this with other naval forces help to enhance relationships with regional states and strengthen maritime security.
