Operation Atalanta’s Deputy Commander Visits Flagship ITS Carabiniere in Dar Es Salaam

On Saturday 20 February 2016 Operation Atalanta’s Deputy Commander, Rear Admiral Jonas Wikström, was welcomed aboard the EU Naval Force flagship, ITS Carabiniere, during her port visit to Dar es Salaam in Tanzania.

This was the Deputy Commander’s first visit to the Force Headquarters since he joined Operation Atalanta from Sweden in January so it was an ideal opportunity for him to be briefed in person by the Force Commander, Rear Admiral Stefano Barbieri, on the Force’s current operations, and to meet the crew.

Before returning to the UK, Rear Admiral Wikström thanked all the officers and sailors embarked on board ITS Carabiniere for their contribution to the operation’s success in deterring and disrupting piracy in the Indian Ocean and Gulf of Aden and strengthening maritime security.
