The deployments of HMS SUTHERLAND and HMS ARGYLL to the Asia Pacific will support a range of defence engagement and prosperity objectives and will demonstrate the United Kingdom's commitment to peace and security throughout the wider region. Both deployments will include joint training and exercises with a number of allies and close partners. These may include exercises with both the United States Navy and the Republic of Korea Navy if and when the ships are in Korean waters.
