Fregata Europea Multi-Missione Carabiniere
Karachi: The FREMM Carabiniere of the Italian Navy arrives at Karachi port for a five day visit as it is extended a warm welcome by the Pakistan Navy. A highly sophisticated ship, she is equipped with state of the art technology and is said to be the jewel of the Italian Naval Fleet.
Maritime cooperation has seen a sudden rise as CPEC turns in to a reality. The rising international interest in the Gawadar port can actually benefit the economy of Pakistan provided it is properly entertained without external interference. This project has the potential to change the dynamics of the region and should be able to generate a huge amount of benefits for all involved. However unfortunately so far the investors I have discussed with are not very comfortable with the present situation of the project.
At this point the efforts of H.E Stefano Pontecorvo Ambassador of Italy along with his team in Islamabad and Consul General of Italy in Karachi Mr. Gianluca Rubagotti along with Pakistan Navy’s various divisions who are constantly engaged in the preparations for our honorable guests must be appreciated. Taking the opportunity I have extended a request to the ambassador to have the honor of learning more about this ship and look forward to meeting the crew and learning more about this marvel of naval engineering.
