Pakistan Navy frigate PNS Alamgir (F 260), German Navy frigate FGS Bayern (F 217), and the US Navy’s guided-missile cruiser USS Shiloh (CG 67) took part in the exercise.

Carrier Strike Group 5/Task Force 50 rear admiral commander Will Pennington said: “Today’s multi-domain operations demonstrate the capacity of the international rules-based system to advance a common vision ensuring peace and stability.
