Despite warnings from the United States vessel, Russian warship “aggressively approached” a US Navy destroyer while it was operating in the North Arabian Sea on Thursday.

The incident is the latest example of a close encounter between US and Russian military forces that US officials have described as unsafe and provocative and comes roughly seven months after another incident in the Pacific in June when US and Russian warships came so close the US ship had to perform an emergency maneuver to avoid a collision.
