U.S. Naval Forces Europe-Africa Spokesperson Capt. Clay Doss provided the following readout:
Today, commander of U.S. Naval Forces Europe-Africa Adm. Stuart Munsch met with Flag Officer Commanding Naval Training Command Ghana Commodore Bright Emmanuel Kojo Atiayao Sept. 21 in Newport, Rhode Island, at the International Seapower Symposium.
The two leaders discussed maritime security trends in Africa, deepening navy interoperability and addressing illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing in the Gulf of Guinea, and the value of the U.S.-Ghana navy relationship. Munsch thanked Atiayao for hosting U.S. Navy Seabees and U.S. Marines at Ghana's Naval Training Command, and for supporting NAVAF's African Maritime Forces Summit held for the first time in Sal Island, Cabo Verde in March 2023.
Jointly hosted by the Chief of Naval Operations and the United States Naval War College, the International Seapower Symposium is a biennial conference that provides a forum for dialogue between international navies, coast guards, and our Marine Corps partners to bolster maritime security by providing an opportunity for international heads of navies and coast guards to collaborate, develop trust, and further navy-to-navy training.
For more than 80 years, NAVEUR-NAVAF has forged strategic relationships with allies and partners, leveraging a foundation of shared values to preserve security and stability. Headquartered in Naples, Italy, NAVEUR-NAVAF operates U.S. naval forces in the EUCOM and AFRICOM areas of responsibility.
