TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iran’s Navy commander raised the possibility of a joint naval drill between Iran, Russia and China.
He said the country’s naval forces have now gained such a high level of power that can stage joint exercises with the other countries.
Back in September, military vessels from the Islamic Republic of Iran and China held a joint naval exercise in the Persian Gulf.
It took place after a first-ever Chinese naval fleet berthed in Iran. Comprising a logistic warship and a destroyer, the fleet stayed at Iran’s southern port city of Bandar Abbas for four days.
In another sign of Iran’s openness to military cooperation with the neighbors, a Russian naval fleet berthed at the Iranian northern port city of Anzali in October.
The Russian fleet, consisting of two missile-launching warships, came to Iran to convey the message of peace and friendship.
