Members of the Colombian, U.S. and Honduran navies will receive anti-narcotics training from Tuesday to Friday on the Colombian Caribbean island of San Andres, the Colombian navy announced via press release.
The 26 crew members from Honduras’ patrol ship Tegucigalpa and 100 crew members from the U.S. coast guard’s Escaban will participate in the exercises.
The Tegucigalpa docked Monday night in San Andres. Capitan Jesus Humberto Benitez said the training was a good way to share information between navies engaged in the fight against drug trafficking.
The crew will also receive instruction in search and rescue, intercepting vessels believed to be transporting drugs and technical maintenance of ships at sea.
