French destroyer set for Romanian drills after entering Black Sea

French Navy’s Horizon-class air warfare destroyer FS Chevalier Paul is scheduled to join Romanian Navy vessels for maritime exercises on July 19, two days after entering the Black Sea.

FS Chevalier Paul is expected to be joined by three Romanian Navy vessels for a set of joint activities in the Black Sea.

During a three-day visit to the Romanian city of Constanta, French sailors will meet Romanian Navy officials and local authorities in addition to taking part in sports activities with their Romanian counterparts.

The destroyer is visiting Romania after meeting up with U.S. Navy aircraft carrier USS Dwight D. Eisenhower in the Mediterranean Sea. On July 14, on the occasion of French National Day, FS Chevalier Paul welcomed aboard U.S. Navy Rear Adm. Kenneth Whitesell, Carrier Strike Group 2 commander.
