France, Spain seek piracy help

with one comment

For some time now, pirates have been ravaging throughout Somali coasts and seizing off 25 ships only last year. Last year a Spanish tuna boat and a French yatch were seized off Somali coasts.

So now both Spain and France are looking for allies to create a multinational naval force to fight piracy in the area and want “as many countries as possible” united in the effort, according to Spanish Defense Minister Carme Chacón.

This is not the first measure brought by the two countries to combat Somali pirates: the UN Security Council passed a resolution in June authorising member countries to send warships into Somali waters temporarily in pursuit of pirates.

The Times – France, Spain seek piracy help.
