Togo receives Defender patrol boat from United States
The United States has donated a Defender patrol boat to the Togolese Navy, adding to the two previously donated to the West African nation.
The vessel was handed over by United States ambassador Phillip Carter III on June 25, together with a boathouse for maintenance, at the naval base in the capital Lome.
The Togolese military (FAT) said the donation would help the navy strengthen its capabilities in the fight against maritime piracy in the Gulf of Guinea.
