>Admiral Ataç to visit TCG Giresun

>

According to spokesman for Turkish General Staff Gen. Gürak, F-491 TCG Giresun escorted her first convoy between 6- 7 March. Turkish merchant vessel M/V Sürmene-4 was among the escorted ships.Among the planned future escorts are two more Turkish merchant ships: M/V Eylül-K and M/V Nazlı-G

Further more the commander of Turkish Navy Admiral Metin Ataç will fly to Somalia next week (9 – 15 March) and will stay a few days on board of TCG Giresun

The visit of Admiral Ataç indicates clearly that the mission of TCG Giresun in Gulf of Aden is taken very seriously in Ankara. If I am not mistaken this might be the first visit from a commander of a navy to the region.

The first pictures of TCG Giresun from the region has also been published. Interestingly the official web page of CTF-151 is very silent about Turkish contribution.

Photos are form Hürriyet.

    >Bu bir başlangıç. Oramiral Ataç’ın bölgeye gidiyor ve TCG Giresun’u ziyaret ediyor olması bu konuya verilen önemin en büyük kanıtı. BM Güvenlik Konseyinin geçici üyesi olan Türkiye için ileride bölge alınacak sorumluluğun artması gündeme gelebilir diye düşünüyorum.
