A port call to Myanmar yesterday by the USNS Fall River marks the first time a Navy ship has visited the Southeast Asian nation since World War II.
The expeditionary fast transport vessel carrying 139 crew members and Capt Standfield L Chien arrived at the Myanmar International Terminal Thilawa (MITT) in the country’s former capital Yangon yesterday and it was welcomed by senior navy officers of Myanmar and the US navy attaché to Myanmar.
They will stay in Myanmar for five days before heading to Malaysia.
During the five-day stay, a musician band from the vessel will meet with Myanmar  musicians and will hold workshops on art.
The band will stage a performance at the US Centre on 24 March, according to the press release of the US Embassy in Yangon.—Myanmar News Agency
