Quotes

Rear Admiral Bléjean commented following the visit, "I have been very impressed with the capabilities of Relampago and the motivation and professionalism of her ship's company, I am sure she will prove a highly effective asset to EU Naval Force."
"When in convoy through the channel, you have to keep a set distance from the vessel in front. You have to stay in the centre of the channel, as it is shallow on both sides and that's why the Suez Channel is one way traffic, you can only sail in one direction." the Bridge Watch Officer commented
"Coordinated interceptions such as this are a perfect example of international navies operating close-up and an excellent way to benchmark our action processes regarding vessel protection and the interception in counter-piracy operations." commented Captain Le Quilliec
"Honourable Members, it's the last time in my mandate that I will address the Parliament for the annual Article 36 debate, which covers Common Foreign and Security Policy and of course Common Security and Defence Policy. So as well as looking, as the requirement is, at “the main aspects and basic choices” of the last twelve months I wanted to take the opportunity in my remarks, to reflect a little on what we have achieved and built in the last four years and perhaps something about what we might aim for in the next mandate. I know that I can't cover all of the different aspects of foreign policy issues in one speech, so I'm going to take my original priorities as a framework and talk about those, while reflecting too on the European Council's discussions in December on Common Security and Defence Policy."
