London The Commander of NATO’s counter-piracy task force, Commodore Christian Rune, Royal Danish Navy, met with the Commander of the Indian counter-piracy task group, Captain S. Srikant, Commanding Officer of INS DELHI yesterday.  Onboard NATO’s flagship, HDMS ESBERN SNARE, in Salalah, Oman, they discussed developments in counter-piracy tactics and improvements in communications and information sharing between the forces.  The Indian Navy has deployed a task group to the Gulf of Aden, currently consisting of the INS DELHI, who conducts escorts of convoys for international merchant vessels transiting through the Internationally Recommended Transit Corridor (IRTC). While conducting the escorts, Indian Navy assets co-operate and share information with the international organizations conducting counter-piracy in the Horn of Africa region including task forces from NATO (Operation Ocean Shield), the European Union (Operation Atalanta), Coalition Maritime Forces, and other nations providing unilateral support to the effort.
