Iran, Oman to Stage Joint Naval Drills

Iranian and Omani naval forces plan to conduct joint naval exercises in the Persian Gulf on Wednesday. The announcement came after a meeting between Deputy Chairman of the General Staff of the Armed Forces Rear Admiral Saleh Esfahani and senior Omani military official Brigadier General Hamd bin Rashid bin Saeed al-Balushi in Tehran on Saturday, Fars News Agency reported.
Balushi is heading a 12-member Omani military delegation on an official visit to Iran.
