United States of America (USA) Navy ship USS PEARL HARBOR visited Karachi port. On arrival, the ship was received by officials of the US Embassy and the Pakistan Navy.
Pakistan and US Navy are partners in peace and striving to achieve a safe and secure maritime milieu and trade. The visit of the US Ship included harbour and sea phases.
In the harbour phase, tabletop discussions on professional matters and bilateral interactions were held. Whereas the sea phase included various seamanship and warfare drills.
US Navy Ship visit to Karachi and joint naval drills are a testimony of the Pakistan Navy resolve to work towards regional peace and it may further strengthen mutual collaboration between the two navies.
