Brazil has become the 33rd member nation to be a part of the multinational naval partnership, Combined Maritime Forces (CMF).

The CMF has been established to strengthen security, stability and prosperity across approximately 3.2 million square miles of international waters.

Primarily, the partnership focuses on defeating terrorism, preventing piracy, promoting regional cooperation and providing a safe maritime environment.

The South American country has had a number of liaison officers who work over the years within the organisation with an aim to develop skills and understanding of the way the maritime force works.

With the addition to the CMF partnership, Brazilian Navy commander Joao Prudencio Enes becomes the first officer to serve as the Senior National Representative with Brazil in active membership.

A Brazilian Navy spokesperson said: “On July 30th, the Brazilian Navy answered the invitation letter from the CCFM accepting the affiliation as a full member of the CMF.

“The Brazilian Navy considers this kind of event an excellent opportunity to reinforce ties of friendship, as well as to promote cooperation and mutual respect among the participating navies.”

The addition of Brazil to the coalition will enable the country to have representation on every inhabited continent and operate as a global maritime task force.

CMF deputy commander commodore Steve Dainton said: “I am delighted to welcome Brazil to our growing organisation.

“This just goes to show that maritime security issues such as piracy and terrorist activity are a true global concern and we look forward to the Brazilian Navy contributing to our international partnership.”
