Germany has joined the Regional Cooperation Agreement on Combating Piracy and Armed Robbery against Ships in Asia (ReCAAP) as the twenty-first Contracting Party.

The ReCAAP Information Sharing Centre (ISC), which disclosed this on Monday, said it “warmly welcomes Germany’s accession to the Agreement”.

“Germany’s accession to the ReCAAP further expands and strengthens the ReCAAP ISC’s information sharing network on piracy and armed robbery against ships in Asia. It demonstrates the crucial role international cooperation plays to collectively address these maritime crimes.

“The ReCAAP ISC is looking forward to working closely with Germany, together with other Contracting Parties, to promote maritime safety in Asia,” it said.

Germany’s membership of ReCAAP is with effect from August 1.
