The US navy warship USS Benfold conducted an exercise with two Indonesian navy warships in Bali waters.

The exercise covered tactical manoeuvers, communication, and other safety procedures.

The two Indonesian navy warships that involved in the exercise were KRI Hasan Basri and KRI Uling.

The Indonesian navy hopes that the exercise would improve the capabilities of the Indonesian Navy personnel.

Meanwhile, USS Benfold commander Adrian Jansen said his ship`s presence in the region was part of his tour of Southeast Asia.

After that, Jansen said, he would return to the US to conduct other operations.

The 54-metre-long USS Benfold weighs around 8,900 tonnes and can carry 280 navy personnel.
