Commander of CTF 151 (CCTF 151) held a video con­fer­ence call with the Commander of the Royal Navy of Oman (CRNO) to dis­cuss future com­bined efforts in the Arabian Sea and around the Gulf of Aden.

Rear Admiral Nejat Inanir (CCTF 151) talked with Rear Admiral Abdullah Bin Kamis Bin Abdullah Al Raisi about infor­ma­tion shar­ing between CTF 151 and Oman; CCTF 151 request­ed con­tin­ued assis­tance in iden­ti­fy­ing region­al mer­chant ship­ping from the Royal Oman Navy, while offer­ing CTF 151’s assis­tance in pro­vid­ing Oman with Pattern of Life infor­ma­tion from out­side Oman’s Exclusive Economic Zone. The two com­man­ders also dis­cussed the pos­si­bil­i­ty of war­ships from the Royal Navy of Oman pro­vid­ing a fur­ther tem­po­rary pres­ence in their nation­al waters to bol­ster the counter-piracy task force of CTF 151, deter­ring pirate activ­i­ty in the region.

RADM Inanir, Commander of CTF151 discusses further cooperation and combined operations with RADM Al Raisi, Commander of the Royal Navy of Oman.

“I am glad to assist and coop­er­ate with future efforts,” said RADM Al Raisi. “We are always there to sup­port such efforts.”

RADM Inanir com­ment­ed on a recent demon­stra­tion of part­ner­ship, during which the Turkish-com­mand­ed CTF 151 and Oman worked togeth­er to assist a strand­ed dhow that was drift­ing in inter­na­tion­al waters for sev­er­al days. A US Navy logis­tics ship sup­port­ing CTF 151’s oper­a­tions deliv­ered much needed pro­vi­sions to the vessel, before an Oman Navy corvette arrived to take the dhow under­tow to Duqm for repairs.

“We are always grate­ful for your coop­er­a­tion and your mar­itime secu­ri­ty oper­a­tions in the region,” said RADM Al Raisi (CRNO) during the vir­tu­al meet­ing.

“Incidents such as the strand­ed dhow demon­strate how the Combined Maritime Forces (CMF) and Oman are quick and agile to respond to unex­pect­ed events in the region,” said RADM Inanir. “Further col­lab­o­ra­tion and rela­tion­ship strength­en­ing is good news for legit­i­mate sea­far­ers.”
