The Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Carney (DDG 64) entered the Black Sea Jan. 5, 2018, to conduct maritime security operations and enhance regional maritime stability, as well as strengthen combined readiness and naval capability among NATO allies and partners.
“We’re committed to building strong relationships in the Black Sea region, which are crucial to peace and stability. Our presence here bolsters confidence and reassures allies of the U.S. commitment to security in the Black Sea.”
