CTF-151 and RBNF Hold Talks To Combat Piracy in the Region

The Commander of the Pakistan-led Combined Task Force 151 (CTF-151), Commodore Abdul Munib SI (M) held a recent engagement with the Commander of the Royal Bahrain Naval Force (RBNF), Rear Admiral Mohamed Yousif Al-Asam at their headquarters.

Commodore Munib (l) and Rear Admiral Yousif (r) met to discuss ongoing and future operations.

The RBNF has a long history of supporting counter-piracy and maritime security operations in the Combined Maritime Forces (CMF) Area of Operations. While thanking the Admiral for the two Bahraini staff officers supporting CTF-151, Cdre Munib said; “I am extremely delighted at the wonderful job your officers are doing in the CTF-151 team. This helps, not only with mutual learning, but also for capacity-building amongst member nations.”

The two leaders reiterated their dedication to supporting counter-piracy operations as part of CMF.

“The measure of performance at CTF-151 is to have zero incidents of piracy in the region. We are continuously working to maintain this status in the region,” added Cdre Munib. “The cooperation and support extended by RBNF has helped the CMF forces in a big way to achieve this success.”

RAdm Mohamed Yousif summarised the meeting; “We are fighting against a common threat. Pakistan are our brothers and we will extend all-out support for your future operations here in CTF-151.”
