On Tuesday, the USS Monterey (CG-611) arrived at the Karachi Port for a two-day logistic port visit to conduct scheduled maintenance. The US Embassy Chargé d’affaires, Lesslie Viguerie, met with the crew on board. He expressed his hope for the strong military-to-military ties between Pakistan and the USA to be effective for the prosperity and stability of South Asia.

The commanding officer, Captain Joseph Baggett, shared that the Monterey crew was excited to visit Pakistan. He further emphasized the need for the two countries to work in collaboration with their regional partners to reinforce their commitment to maritime security.

The visit was quite event-filled and productive for the naval forces of both countries and is expected to further contribute to the strengthening of ties between the USA and Pakistan.
