ITS Euro’s Training with Djiboutian Coastguard Helping to Strengthen Maritime Security Against PiracyJune 8, 2016 - 09:33
Whilst on her recent port visit to Djibouti, Operation Atalanta’s Italian warship, ITS Euro, took the opportunity to conduct maritime training with the Djiboutian Coastguard.
This type of training is conducted on a regular basis by Operation Atalanta warships during their port visits, with the aim of strengthening cooperation and capabilities of regional partners to ensure piracy remains suppressed off the coast of Somalia.
The crew of ITS Euro trained alongside twenty members of the Djiboutian Coastguard, practising a range of skills, including the classification and defusing of maritime-borne explosives and fire-fighting procedures.
There was also a demonstration on the methods used by Italian Navy boarding teams to stop and search suspect vessels. During the day a joint boarding team, composed of members of the Djiboutian Coastguard and Italian Marines conducted a simulated boarding operation on the Djiboutian Coastguard patrol boat, Damer Jog.
