The Dutch government has decided to extend its participation in the anti-piracy mission off the Somali coast at least until next year.

Four frigates and a submarine will take turns in guarding merchant vessels in the Gulf of Aden and the Indian Ocean, alternatively as part of an EU and of a NATO mission. The Netherlands has been taken part in anti-piracy missions off the Somali coast since 2008.
