Navy ships from Singapore, Thailand and the U.S. completed a three day multilateral Cooperation Afloat Readiness and Training (CARAT) exercise in the South China Sea on May 12.

The three-day exercise included a broad spectrum of naval competencies and maritime security training aimed at enhancing cooperation and interoperability amongst the three navies.

The navies are long-time maritime partners under the CARAT series, which began in 1995 with Thailand and Singapore as original participants in the exercise series. The multilateral engagement follows initiative to make some phases of the CARAT exercise series multilateral.
