Researchers: Protection of Danish merchant navy is crucial

Protection of the national merchant navy is very much a Danish interest, is the assessment from a new study by Copenhagen University’s Center for Military Studies. Accordingly, the Center does not encourage The Danish Defence to economize on its efforts at sea.

Piracy should be fought by The Royal Danish Navy in order to make sure the Danish merchant navy can enjoy smooth sailing. That is the conclusion of a new study by The Center for Military Studies at Copenhagen University released on Friday morning.
