According to the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), upon arrival in Karachi, the US Navy ship was received by senior officials of the Pakistan Navy. During the US ship’s stay in Karachi, the activities included professional interaction with the PN officials and the ship’s crew in the form of table top discussions on contemporary issues besides planning and coordination meeting for conduct of joint sea exercise.

At sea, the Pakistan Navy Ship ALAMGIR with embarked helicopter carried out sea exercise with visiting US Navy ship to enhance interoperability between both the navies.
