EU Naval Force Flagship FS Siroco Ensures Safe Delivery Of EUCAP Nestor Vehicles To Kenyan Forces In Mombasa

On Saturday 11 January 2014, EU Naval Force French flagship, FS Siroco conducted a transfer of two armoured vehicles to Kenyan security forces. The vehicles were donated by the European Union mission, EUCAP NESTOR, which aims to help strengthen security in the region.

The successful delivery, which was carried out with the support of the French Embassy in Mombasa, and in close cooperation with Kenyan Security Forces, highlighted the full cooperation of European Union missions in the Horn of Africa and how they work together through the EU’s Comprehensive Approach.

Upon EUCAP Nestor’s request for logistic assistance, the two vehicles were embarked in FS Siroco in Djibouti and transferred by sea to Mombasa.

After the delivery operation ended, EU NAVFOR Force Commander, Rear Admiral Hervé Bléjean commented: “This vehicle delivery assistance performed today for EUCAP Nestor is clearly one of the examples showing the increasingly cooperative and dynamic EU operations in the region. EU Naval Force will continue to support the EU’s comprehensive approach throughout our area of operations.”
