On 11 December 2014, staff from the Combined Maritime Forces (CMF) counter-terrorism task force, Combined Task Force 150 (CTF-150), met with representatives of the regional Australian Federal Police (AFP) Detachment to deepen the relationship between the two organisations in defeating maritime terrorism.

As an agile task force bolstered by international cooperation, CTF-150 meets regularly with regional partners to discuss common challenges and interoperability.

“CTF-150 and AFP share common objectives in promoting the legitimate use of the seas in the Middle East,” said Captain Nicholas Stoker, Deputy Commander CTF-150.

He added:

“Working in partnership can benefit both of our organisations and ensure that waterways in the region stay safe and secure for international trade to thrive.”
