Djibouti held a ceremony on 2 December to accept two new patrol boats that were built by Japan’s Sumidagawa Shipyard under a JPY924 million (USD7.5 million) contract financed by Japan’s International Cooperation Agency (IOM).

The donation was announced in November 2014, when the local press reported that the boats would be 20 m in length, making them the largest operated by the Djibouti Coast Guard.

It was announced during the acceptance ceremony that Japan had also paid for 20 Djiboutian personnel in Morocco so they can operate and maintain the new vessels, named Damerjog and Khor Angar .
