US, UK Navies Plan Future Cooperation
Posted by Eric Haun
Leaders of the U.S. and British navies agreed on a shared vision for closer cooperation Dec. 11, the culmination of a yearlong effort that will build on a long-standing maritime partnership over the next 15 years.
Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Jonathan Greenert and his counterpart in the United Kingdom, First Sea Lord Sir George Zambellas, signed a combined strategic narrative that articulates a shared vision for deeper cooperation between the U.S. Navy (USN) and the Royal Navy (RN).
“The United States and the United Kingdom rely on our navies to project power in critical regions and to protect the freedom of navigation that underpins the global economy,” said Greenert.
The narrative, titled “Combined Seapower: A Shared Vision for Royal Navy-United States Navy Cooperation,” is the culmination of a yearlong effort by a RN-USN study group formed in September 2013 to identify opportunities to enhance ties.
