During the talks, they discussed maritime strategy and how best to operate forces together at sea with Vice Adm. FUKUDA Tatsuya and members of the Fleet Escort Force staff.
“The Indo-Pacific region is critically important to U.S. National Security and where CTF 70 is focused daily,” said Donnelly. “The U.S. maritime strategy counts on and leverages the common values and efforts of our like-minded partners and allies throughout the region. Our operations and work in this environment are stronger due to our water-tight friendship with the JMSDF. Taking time with visits like this, to discuss items of mutual concern and interest and share our professional knowledge gives us the ability to meet any challenge together.”
