>TCG Giresun to fight pirates off Somalia (Part-2)

>As mentioned previously, the motion for sending warships to Gulf of Aden, adjacent waters and Somalian territorial waters for one year, was accepted by Turkish Parliament.

The full transcript of the motion and the comments of the political parties can be found here.

One important issue regarding this motion is that it denies any action on land.

The first ship to sail down is F-491 TCG Giresun. Currently she is at the Aksaz Naval Base in Marmaris. She will leave on 17th February 2009.

I wish her and her crew fair winds and following seas.
