MIL OSI Translation. Government of the Republic of France statements from French to English –

Source: Republic of France in French The French Republic has issued the following statement:

On October 20, 2020, as part of its engagement in direct support of Operation IRINI, the anti-submarine frigate Latouche-Tréville visited a cargo ship providing a link between Turkey and Libya.

With favorable weather conditions, the ship’s marshal was able to carry out all the administrative checks concerning the crew, registration certificates or even the list of ports of call, while the inspection team focused on the investigation of containers carried by the freighter. After 4 hours of investigation, the papers were found to be in order and the cargo legal. The inspection team was thus able to return aboard the Latouche Tréville and be prepared for future operations on alert.

The main mission of the frigate is the implementation of the United Nations Security Council resolution on the arms embargo on Libya. On a daily basis, the FASM Latouche-Tréville monitors the situation in the area and participates in the control of flows entering and leaving Libya.



The frigate Latouche Tréville has been engaged since October 1 in the Mediterranean in direct support of the EURONAVFORMED IRINI operation launched on March 31, 2020 by decision of the European Council. The main objective of the operation is to enforce the arms embargo against Libya, imposed by United Nations Security Council resolutions 2292 (2016) and 2526 (2020).
