Ronald Reagan CSG, ROK Navy Strengthen Ties
The Ronald Reagan Carrier Strike Group (CSG) is scheduled to conduct a series of exercises with the Republic of Korea (ROK) Navy Oct. 26-29 to strengthen maritime interoperability and tactics, techniques and procedures.
The U.S. routinely conducts CSG operations in the waters around the Republic of Korea to exercise maritime maneuvers, strengthen the U.S.-ROK alliance, and improve regional security.
Rear Adm. John Alexander, commander, Battle Force 7th Fleet, said:
The U.S. and the Republic of Korea share one of the strongest alliances in the world.
Our navies learn from each other, and we grow stronger as an alliance because of our routine exercises here in South Korea and the close relationship and ties that we forge from operating at sea together.
The exercises will consist of a routine bilateral training, subject matter expert exchanges, anti-submarine and anti-surface warfare drills, communication drills, air defense exercises, counter-mine planning and distinguished visitor embarkations.
