Anti-Piracy Operations Praised

Anti-Piracy Operations Praised

Pakistan's military attaché in Iran said the anti-piracy operations of Iranian naval forces in international waters are "valuable" and "praiseworthy".
"Iran's navy has made great progress in various areas including building ships and commissioning unmanned aircraft as well as advanced missiles, all of which deserve praise," IRNA quoted General Vahid Momtaz as saying on Sunday.
He made the remarks in Tehran where military attachés from 29 countries met Navy Commander Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari.
In recent years, Iranian naval forces have sought to expand maritime relations and exchange expertise with Tehran’s allies including Russia and China.  
Two Russian warships recently docked at the Caspian Sea port of Anzali in northern Iran.
In September, a Chinese fleet of warships anchored in the southern port city of Bandar Abbas for the first time that Chinese warships had ever sailed in the Persian Gulf. It came shortly after Iran’s naval forces thwarted an attack by pirates on a Chinese container ship in the Gulf of Aden.
