USS James E. Williams is not part of a larger strike group, according to the tweet.

The posting says that the vessel transited the Bosphorus Strait and entered the Black Sea after nine days in Jedda, Saudi Arabia port visit and the Red Sea patrol.

As UNIAN reported earlier, a guided-missile destroyer USS John S. McCain in August collided with an oil tanker east of Singapore in a second accident involving U.S. Navy destroyers in Asian waters in little more than two months.
