Navies Working Together to Combat Terrorist use of The Northern Arabian Sea

In February 2011, the five nations that comprise Combined Task Force 150 (CTF 150) (Commodore Greg Sammut, CSC,RAN) conducted a focused operation in the Northern Arabian Sea to deter, detect and disrupt terrorist funding related narcotics smuggling.
Ships and aircraft from Australia, France, Pakistan, the United Kingdom and the United States worked together to conduct almost 200 interactions targeting narcotics smuggling in the area.
“The success of this operation demonstrated the established capacity of CMF's contributing navies to uphold security and stability in the maritime environment.
“All ships involved engaged positively with the local mariner community, promoting legitimate use of the sea and stability within the region,” Commodore Sammut said.
