They will be deployed as an APVD team (Autonomous Vessel Protection Team), to ensure the protection of World Food Program (WFP) ships supplying Somalia from Kenya.

This is not the first time that the soldiers of this small Balkan country have boarded the European operation. This was already the case three years ago, in 2017 (read: A team of Montenegrin VPDs on board the WFP ship).
