Maritime security, combating illicit drugs are areas of cooperation for Seychelles, US

Maritime security and combating illicit drugs are two areas where the Seychelles and the United States will collaborate, the US Ambassador said Tuesday. 

David Reimer made this statement after paying a courtesy call on President Danny Faure at State House, Victoria, where he also announced some small grants for the island nation.

“As Seychelles is surrounded by great waters, we need to be vigilant always to counter the act of piracy and illegal fishing. Although vulnerable, the island needs to protect its resources at all cause,” said Reimer.
