New Zealand Chief of Navy Pays Visit to MARCOM

NATO Allied Maritime Command (MARCOM) recently welcomed the Royal New Zealand Chief of Navy, Rear Admiral Jack Steer, to discuss Royal New Zealand Navy participation in NATO operations.

The New Zealand Warship HMNZS TE MANA became the second partner nation to support NATO’s counter-piracy task force as part of Operation OCEAN SHIELD in 2014. Future opportunities for cooperation in additional areas, such as NATO’s counter-terrorism Operation ACTIVE ENDEAVOUR, were part of the discussion.

Vice Admiral Bruno Paulmier, Deputy Commander of MARCOM, said:

We have been very satisfied with our previous partnership engagements with the Royal New Zealand Navy. We look forward to future opportunities to cooperate, and yesterday’s visit helped lay the groundwork.
