Oman, logistics base?

(BRUSSELS2, exclusive) A European exploratory mission went to Oman at the beginning of July to examine the means, conditions and difficulties for establishing a logistical base for EU anti-piracy action. Since the pirate attacks have moved to the eastern Indian Ocean, it is important for the ships engaged in the Eunavfor Atalanta operation not to have to travel to Djibouti or Mombasa (Kenya) to resupply.
