HMS Diamond – which is currently in the Eastern Mediterranean region – will join a multinational group that includes US, French, and other naval ships, to provide presence and reassurance, and to ensure that international trade continues to flow, Admiral Sir Tony Radakin said, in a speech to the Royal United Services Institute in London. The naval presence, CDS continued, is designed to send a message “that it is unacceptable for merchant ships to be attacked”.
