The Danish company Maersk said on Sunday that it is preparing to resume shipping operations in the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden, noting the deployment of a US-led military operation aimed at ensuring the safety of trade in the region.

The shipping giant temporarily stopped sending ships through the Bab al-Mandab Strait earlier in December due to attacks on its ships. This made the Suez Canal, which is essential for global trade, unusable for most routes.
