New Zealand pledges continued support for anti-piracy operations
The New Zealand government on Friday confirmed that it would continue to assist in international operations to prevent piracy in the Gulf of Aden, the Indian Ocean and the Gulf of Oman. Defence Minister Jonathan Coleman said Royal New Zealand Navy frigate HMNZS Te Mana would join the Combined Maritime Force (CMF), the multinational task group designed to combat piracy in the region, later this year. "The frigate will be part of the maritime security taskforce for three months from November this year, after having a work-up period in Australia," Coleman said in a statement. A New Zealand Defence Force P-3K2 Orion maritime patrol aircraft would be deployed with the CMF for three months from mid-2014. "We will also provide staff officers for the CMF taskforce command for two periods of three months each, one in 2013 and 2014. Six officers will be attached from mid-2013 and up to 14 staff officers will command a taskforce from 2014. Three Navy personnel will also deploy with the Australian frigate HMAS Melbourne," said Coleman. "Piracy in the Gulf of Aden-Indian Ocean region affects all countries with shipping trade going through the Suez Canal. New Zealand has a direct interest in supporting the maritime security taskforce and protecting shipping lanes, with a large volume of our trade carried by shipping," he added. Trade with the Middle East and North Africa was valued at more than NZD 7 billion (USD 7.06 billion) in the year to June 2012, representing 7.5% of New Zealand's total global trade. The CMF is a multinational task group and naval partnership of 27 nations, operating across the main shipping routes from the Far East to Europe and the US. (Xinhua)
Ships to display green lights on Singapore Strait TSS crossing
IMO's Maritime Safety Committee has adopted an earlier recommendation that ships display three all-round green lights when crossing the Singapore Strait Traffic Separation Scheme (TSS). The night signals identify these vessels crossing the TSS during hours of darkness, which will allow other vessels in the appropriate lanes to take actions if required, thereby enhancing navigational safety, an IMO statement said. The IMO's Maritime Safety Committee at its 91st session in November 2012, in accordance with the provisions of resolution A.858(20), adopted the proposal to recognise the measure as a full-fledged recommendatory measure
