Led by Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force (JMSDF), this year’s ANNUALEX concluded with a joint press conference with Vice Adm. Hideki Yuasa, chief of the JMSDF Fleet, and Vice Adm. Karl Thomas, commander, U.S. 7th Fleet, hosted on Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson (CVN 70).
"Throughout ANNUALEX, the JMSDF have improved our bilateral response capability and interoperability with the U.S. Navy, as well as deepened our mutual understanding and cooperation with the Australian, Canadian and German navies,” said Vice Adm. Hideki Yuasa, Commander in Chief, Self Defense Fleet, JMSDF. “The relationship between the JMSDF and the U.S. Navy has never been stronger, which contributes to our strengthening the response capabilities of the Japan-U.S. alliance while building a global partnership.”
