    The US guided-missile destroyer, USS Laboon, from the 6th Fleet cast anchor at Georgia’s Black Sea port of Batumi on Sunday.

    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.
