Farewells and thanks to the FGS Hamburg

After 107 days of deployment in EUNAVFOR MED operation IRINI, the German Navy FGS Hamburg is now on her way back to Germany. Since her arrival in the area of operations, the FGS Hamburg provided great support to the Operation, contributing to hail 125 merchant vessels, conducting 32 friendly approaches and 2 boarding.

Hamburg gave a significant contribution to the maritime security in the Mediterranean Sea aimed at implementing in an effective, balance and impartial manner the Arms Embargo on Libya.

The crew showed strong commitment and perseverance, as well as enthusiasm and flexibility. The high standards of performances and cooperative attitude are a credit to the German navy and demonstrating the Commitments to CSDP.
