JS KIRISAME conducted a bilateral exercise with USNS CESAR CHAVEZ

On July 30, JS KIRISAME conducted a bilateral exercise in vicinity of the Federated States of Micronesia with USNS CESAR CHAVEZ.
This exercise was conducted to maintain the ability of the U.S. and Japanese naval supply forces to conduct replenishments at sea. The logistic divisions of Japanese and U.S. naval forces are operating more effectively and efficiently based on our strong and enduring alliance in support of front-line units.
The Self-Defense Fleet remains ready to work with The U.S. Navy, in order to realize a “Free and Open Indo-Pacific,” safeguard the peace and security of Japan, and support stability in the Indo-Pacific region.
