American Admiral James Stavridis, formerly head of the European Command of the US Army, spoke in the western press about the British navy. According to Admiral Stavridis, the British navy "has always assisted the American navy in important operations.".
From the statement of the American admiral to the US press:
British warships consistently handled well, recruited and armed. We have always had excellent communication with them.. When we were boarding the British allies, then there it was possible in the wardroom for dinner to drink a glass of foam, unlike our ships, where the dry law is in effect.
US Admiral Stavridis comments on London's new doctrine, dubbed "Global Britain".
Recall, that on the basis of this doctrine, the authorities of the United Kingdom are going to strengthen their fleet, directing it to different regions of the World Ocean. One of the tasks is to send an aircraft carrier strike group in the maritime borders of China.
British Navy sends a clear signal to Beijing by sending an aircraft carrier strike group east. To the strike group, led by the aircraft carrier "Queen Elizabeth", includes two advanced air defense destroyers and two very powerful anti-submarine frigates, as well as a nuclear submarine. The air wing consists of 5th generation fighters.
According to Stavridis, the British AUG will be joined by an American destroyer with the Aegis system, as well as a warship of the Netherlands Navy.
Such an aircraft carrier strike group, according to Stavridis, will be able to restrain China from "aggression against Taiwan".
Great Britain's strong presence in these waters (in the Pacific) will be welcomed not only in Washington, but also at the headquarters of the US Pacific Fleet in Hawaii and, first of all, 7th U.S. Fleet in Yokosuka, Japan.
It should be added, that the British Navy AUG was still in the Mediterranean, from where two ships from its composition were sent to the Black Sea area "to contain Russia". It turns out, that one AUG Britain is going to "send signals" to China, and Russia at the same time.
