NATO has reportedly warned of possible attacks from pro-Qaeda Somali pirates on Indian sailing vessels and sailors, off the coast of Somalia. The attacks could take place over the next few weeks, as weather off the coast of Somalia and the surrounding the Gulf of Aden improves.

According to media reports, NATO has assured the Indian Navy of its assistance in its anti-piracy drive.

The sea surrounding the Gulf of Aden is patrolled by the navies of NATO, India and other nations, and cooperate closely with each other.
