Naval Base Built Near Sea of Oman

The construction of Iran’s newest naval base in the coastal area of Pasabandar in the country’s southeastern corner has been completed, Navy Commander Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari announced. Speaking to Tasnim News Agency on Sunday, the top commander said the Navy has completed the development of Pasabandar naval base as well as two naval zones in Konarak County. “The navy devised plans to develop two naval zones and three new military bases in the area, as soon as it was ordered to boost presence along the coasts of Makran,” Sayyari said. Pasabandar, also known as Makran Coast, is located in Iran’s southeastern region alongside the Sea of Oman. The strategic area has attracted the attention of many Iranian decision-makers and military officials, particularly after the Leader of Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei stressed the need for developing the region. In November 2014, in a meeting with high-ranking navy commanders, Ayatollah Khamenei said, “The issue of development of Makran Coast is among those basic tasks and he plans for that region should be carried out more rapidly.”
