Saudi-US Naval Exercise to Kick Off in Eastern Province

A mixed naval exercise will kick off next week as the Royal Saudi Naval Forces will host the US Navy at King Abdulaziz Naval Base in the Eastern Fleet.

The exercise is an extension of a series of previous joint exercises between the two countries.

It aims to raise combat readiness to maintain freedom of maritime navigation.

The exercise also enhances maritime security in the region and unifies the concepts of naval combat work.
