Date: 4 June 2012 - Author: Jakarta Globe
Three US warships were stationed off Situbondo, in East Java, on Monday to participate in joint exercises with the Indonesian navy, a report said on Monday.
The warships the USS Germantown, the USS Van de Grift and the USCGS Waeshe left from Surabaya's Tanjung Perak harbor Sunday morning, the Antara news reported. The US ships sailed in a convoy with three Indonesian navy ships the KRI Sultan iskandar Muda-367, KRI Silsas Ppare-384, KRI Banda Aceh-593.

"We will conduct the exercise on [Monday]," said Ensign Jason Tross, spokesman of the USS Hermantown.

The Cooperation Afloat Readiness and Train (CARAT) joint maneuvers between the US Navy and Coast Guard and the Indonesian Navy has been held annually for the past 18 years.

"In 2010 it was held in the eastern area, in 2011 in the western area and therefore it is once again in the eastern region," said Tross, who said it was the first time he visited Indonesia.
