The U.S. Navy and the Royal Canadian Navy joined forces to conduct bilateral operations in the South China Sea, 18-20 June. The bilateral operations included the U.S. Navy Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Ralph Johnson (DDG 114) and the Royal Canadian Navy Halifax-class frigate HMCS Montreal (FFH 336).

The U.S. Navy regularly operates alongside its Allies in the Indo-Pacific region as a demonstration of its shared commitment to the rules-based international order. Bilateral operations such as this one provide valuable opportunities to train, exercise and develop tactical interoperability across Allied navies in the Indo-Pacific.

“Close coordination with our allies and partners is paramount to success in the region,” said Capt. Justin Harts, Commander, Destroyer Squadron 15. “Demonstrating regional cooperation with the Royal Canadian Navy is key to ensuring a free and open Indo-Pacific.”

During the operations, the ships conducted personnel transfers, flight operations, and a replenishment at sea with the Lewis-and-Clark class dry cargo ship USNS Wally Schirra (T-AKE 8).
