CSC welcomes the launch of Operation Prosperity Guardian by various countries


The Cyprus Shipping Chamber (CSC), welcomes the announcement from the US Defence Secretary Lloyd Austin of the initiation of Operation Prosperity Guardian, to address the security challenges in the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden, further to the increasing number of attacks against merchant ships in the region.

The launch of the multi-national security initiative Operation Prosperity Guardian is an important step forward to safeguard the uninterrupted operation of global trade and protect innocent seafarers who are exposed to Houthi aggressions in the Southern Red Sea. This concerted effort underscores a shared commitment to safeguarding the lives of seafarers and securing maritime routes critical for global trade.

CSC expresses its gratitude for the proactive steps being taken by various countries to ensure the protection of lives at sea and the smooth operation of international shipping routes and remain committed to continue supporting initiatives on this crucial matter.
