In a historic operation, the Brazilian Navy and the United States 4th Fleet begin joint military exercises with the aircraft carrier USS George Washington, aiming to strengthen ties and increase interoperability between naval forces, while demonstrating a strategic presence in Latin America.

In an unprecedented event, the Brazilian Navy (MB) and the United States 4th Fleet began a joint operation with the aircraft carrier USS George Washington, symbolizing a milestone in military collaboration between Brazil and the United States. The operation, called “Southern Seas 2024”, takes place from May 15th to 24th, covering the maritime area from Espírito Santo to Rio de Janeiro.

The USS George Washington, one of the United States' premier naval assets, is known for its global power projection capabilities and plays a vital role in international operations and military exercises. The aircraft carrier's visit to Brazil not only reinforces defense ties between the nations, but is also seen, according to experts, as a strategic maneuver in the face of China's growing influence in Latin America.
