The Royal Danish Navy Chief of Staff, Rear Admiral Torben Mikkelsen, was in Brest on Thursday 13th of February to meet the Admiral Commander-in-Chief for the Atlantic (CECLANT). The discussions focused on various subjects including maritime security for the benefit of the merchant navy.
The Admiral was very interested by his visit to the MICA Center. He has shown a particular interest to the French approach of maritime security through the Voluntary Maritime Cooperation.
Maritime security is a logical concern for Denmark, whose merchant navy is very active, largely due to MAERSK, one of the most important world maritime company and the largest container ship owner in the world.
The exchanges have helped to address maritime issues and further strengthen the prospects for cooperation in Maritime security between the two nations.
