The US Navy has plans to widen its activities in the Black Sea region by involving 14 countries in its envisaged military training drills this year.

The chief of the US European Command admiral James Stavridis said the marine operative-tactic corps would widen the activity area in the Black Sea region to include 14 countries, according to a Georgian media report.

The widening of the activity area aims to train partner states for the Afghanistan peace mission, the admiral explained in his testimony to US Congress.

About six countries surround the Black Sea including Russia, Ukraine, Bulgaria, Romania, Turkey and Georgia.
