Muscat Daily - - NATION -

Dur­ing a re­cent visit to Port Sul­tan Qa­boos, ESPS Gali­cia crew mem­bers wel­comed aboard the Span­ish Am­bas­sador to Oman, H E José Antonio Bordallo Huido­bro.

Dur­ing the visit the am­bas­sador was given a brief­ing on the Euro­pean Union’s counter-piracy op­er­a­tions off the coast of So­ma­lia, and Spain’s con­tin­u­ing com­mit­ment to Op­er­a­tion Ata­lanta, which in­cludes the de­ploy­ment of war­ships, mar­itime pa­trol air­craft and mil­i­tary per­son­nel.

Speak­ing dur­ing the visit, EU Nav­for’s force com­man­der, Rear Ad­mi­ral Rafael Fernán­dez-Pin­tado Muñoz-Ro­jas, ex­pressed his grat­i­tude to the Span­ish Am­bas­sador for tak­ing the time to visit ESPS Gali­cia.

“The ship’s com­pany, my Force HQ staff and I very much ap­pre­ci­ate you tak­ing the time to visit us to­day,” he said.

Port vis­its such as the one in Mus­cat are an op­por­tu­nity for the ves­sel to re­stock es­sen­tial sup­plies in­clud­ing food.
