Commander Elliot spoke to the Master of the vessel and thanked the AVPD for their efforts to date. He said: ‘The troops do a difficult and sometimes understated job but what they guarantee is the safe delivery of these supplies that will go to people desperate for the support the UN WFP brings” he added: “this is a key task in support of the mandate of Op Atalanta.”

The team of Lithuanian troops have been on duty at sea since November 2017 and have been providing continuous protection for UN WFP shipping in line with EU NAVFOR’s Op Atalanta mandate.

Since the protection of WFP has commenced EU NAVFOR has seen the safe delivery of over 1.6M tonnes of food aid and critical supplies to displaced persons in Somalia supporting the humanitarian assistance of the EU Comprehensive Approach.
