U.S. Navy stresses Asia commitment with drills in Philippine Sea

ABOARD THE USS RONALD REAGAN — The U.S. Navy this week signaled its resolve to maintain a strong presence in the Indo-Pacific region, holding its largest joint exercise with Japan of the year,  in the Philippine Sea, south of Japan.

The exercise “demonstrates the United States’ and Japan’s strong commitments to a free and open Indo-Pacific region,” Rear Adm. Karl Thomas told reporters on Saturday aboard the USS Ronald Reagan, an aircraft carrier.

The two countries have dispatched a total of 57,000 sailors and other personnel for the drills.
