Mogadishu – 16 April 2024.

The Swedish Ambassador to Somalia Joachim Waern visited the General Daghadaban training center. The Deputy Commander of the Mission Force, Navy Captain Mats Fogelmark, accompanied him by illustrating the ongoing training activities and showing the center’s infrastructure, the work in progress and briefing him on future projects. Ambassador Waern showed great interest in the work of EUTM-S and met with the young officer cadets, spoke with them, and took some photos with them.

The cadets took advantage of the Ambassador’s presence to bid farewell to their Swedish instructors who had reached the end of their mandate.

Sweden is one of the largest contributors of personnel to the EUTM-S mission.
