The United States Navy’s littoral combat ship USS TULSA is in Manila since 24 February 2022 for a regular port call.

The vessel was granted diplomatic clearance by the Department of Foreign Affairs and is currently undergoing replenishment and maintenance.

Last Tuesday, 22 February 2022, the United States Navy’s 7th Fleet, Vice Adm. Karl Thomas, visited the Philippine Navy headquarters to meet with Flag Officer In Command, Vice Adm. Adeluis Bordado.

The visit reaffirmed the two navies’ partnership and cooperation, with the two leaders emphasizing a “free and open Indo-Pacific region.”

The USS TULSA is expected to leave the Port of Manila as soon as the ship replenishment and maintenance are completed.
