Visit of the Japanese detachment in Djibouti to Spanish - DAT Orion

October 9, 2023
  • The members of the Spanish and Japanese DATs exchanged impressions during the visit.

Members of the Japanese detachment paid a courtesy visit to the Spanish detachment, where they visited the facilities and took the opportunity to share their impressions of the mission.

During the visit, the members of the Japanese detachment presented their hosts with T-shirts and kimonos representative of their detachment and Japanese culture.

The Japanese detachment, although outside the framework of Operation Atalanta, carries out the same maritime patrol missions as the Spanish detachment. It has two P3 "Orion" maritime patrol and reconnaissance aircraft belonging to the Japanese Naval Self-Defence Force, very similar to those that the Spanish detachment had until last December and which gave it its name
