    TENSION: Russian and US naval vessels nearly collide in North Arabian Sea

    Russian and US warships almost collide The US Navy said a Russian navy ship "aggressively approached" its destroyer in the Arabian Sea on Thursday while it was conducting routine operations. The USS Farragut gave five warning blasts on its horn before the Russian warship changed course.

    “On Thursday, Jan. 9, while conducting routine operations in the North Arabian Sea, USS Farragut was aggressively approached by a Russian Navy ship,” according to a statement from the US Navy's Fifth Fleet.

    “Farragut sounded five short blasts, the international maritime signal for danger of a collision, and requested the Russian ship alter course in accordance with international rules of the road. The Russian ship initially refused but ultimately altered course,” the statement said, continuing “while the Russian ship took action, the initial delay in complying with international rules while it was making an aggressive approach increased the risk of collision.”
