October and November saw a significant contribution from Italy with the Horizon class frigate MARTINENGO and the
support of an UAV MQ-9 REAPER. This new contribution to AGENOR Task Force 474, was exposed in the FHQ to His
Excellency Nicola Lener, the Italian ambassador to the UAE.
Upon her departure from the operation, ITS MARTINENGO had performed a dozen of transits in the Strait of Hormuz,
reassuring the shipping and monitoring in the area.
On her journey back home from Asia, the Dutch frigate HNLMS EVERTSEN shared information with AGENOR and made
a port visit in Muscat with MARTINENGO. These visits gave EMASoH’ Senior Civilian Representative, Ambassador Jakob
Brix Tange, who was visiting the region with the Force Commander Captain de Véricourt, an opportunity to engage
Omani authorities, promote EMASoH/AGENOR and share views on how to improve dialogue on maritime security. Read the full report below.
