Collaboration with other navies has long been a centerpiece of U.S. naval strategy, policy, and operations. Indeed, the 2007 maritime strategy that the Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard signed underscores the need for maritime forces to build confidence and trust among nations through collective security efforts that focus on common threats and mutual interests in an open, multi-polar world. To do so will require an unprecedented level of integration among our maritime forces and enhanced cooperation with the other instruments of national power, as well as the capabilities of our international partners.
