While in Batumi, the Arleigh Burke-class destroyer will “conduct routine combined training with the Georgian Coast Guard and provide ship and press tours,” the US embassy in Tbilisi said.

“The Laboon’s visit reaffirms the United States’ commitment to strengthening ties with NATO allies and partners like Georgia, while working toward mutual goals of promoting security and stability in the Black Sea region,” it added.
