Navy Plans Joint Drills With India

The Navy chief said the Islamic Republic plans to hold joint military drills with India.
“We will stage short-term maneuvers with the Indian armed forces and plan to hold tactical, extensive, large-scale maneuvers and rescue and relief drills with India,” Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari told reporters on Thursday, according to Press TV.
Sayyari made the statements after he met with the Indian deputy commander for naval operations and his entourage to discuss cooperation to establish security in the north of Indian Ocean.
“The Indian Ocean is of high significance to the world and the Islamic Republic of Iran and its security is very important to us and the globe. Therefore, we have announced that we are capable of ensuring security in the north of the Indian Ocean to prevent any insecurity there,” he said.
Sayyari added that an Indian naval fleet will dock at the southern Iranian port city of Bandar Abbas, the capital of Hormozgan Province, in April or May.
