FNA- The forty-Ninth fleet of the Iranian Navy warships arrived in Bangladesh to join joint military drills in the Indian Ocean.
Iranian Navy Commander Rear Admiral Hossein Khanzadi announced on Sunday that the Iranian fleet of warships comprising Sabalan destroyer and Bandar Abbas naval logistics vessel docked at Bangladeshi harbor to take part in maritime rescue exercise in the Indian Ocean.
“The exercise will be conducted under the supervision of the Bangladeshi navy in the Bay of Bengal, and it will continue for two days, and its related news will be released,” Rear Admiral Khanzadi told reporters.
