The American Arleigh Burke-class destroyer USS Roosevelt (DDG 80) sailed to Larnaca.

In a post on Twitter, the American ambassador to Cyprus, Julie Fisher, welcomed the warship to Larnaca, pointing out that it bears the name of President Franklin Roosevelt and his wife Eleonora.

Ms. Fisher also expressed satisfaction for the joint visit with the Chief of the National Guard and the Cypriot partners on the ship, “to meet”, as she typically states, “the distinguished officers and crew and to discuss our common goals to promote security and stability in the Eastern Mediterranean”.
