On completion of the training, the officer cadets were given a tour of the ship and briefed on its capabilities and roles undertaken whilst deployed with Operation Atalanta off the coast of Somalia.
The commanding officer of ESPS Meteoro, Lieutenant Commander José Almira, said:
It is important that we continue to interact and train with our regional partners to build mutual trust and understanding and improve maritime security within the region.
