The US aircraft carrier USS John C Stennis has been anchored at the Laem Chabang deep sea port as a display of the close military ties Thailand enjoys with the United States. The aircraft carrier arrived on Tuesday, when the Cobra Gold military exercises were launched, and will be leaving today.

“Our mission is to maintain a peaceful presence and support international law by sailing in international waters,” Captain J Patrick Thompson, carrier executive officer, told reporters during a tour of his vessel. 

Initiated in 1982, Cobra Gold is the largest Asia-Pacific military exercise held in Thailand every year. The training in recent years has mostly focused on humanitarian and disaster relief, but Thompson did not disclose what role his ship took in the drill.
