Naval Vessels Head for Russian Contest  Naval Vessels Head for Russian Contest

Two Iranian naval vessels have set sail for Russia to take part in a military contest. Two Peykan-class frigates from the Iranian Navy's Caspian flotilla left its northern coast to participate in the Russian military games, Tasnim News Agency reported on Saturday. The two vessels will make a port call at the Republic of Azerbaijan's Baku as part of their itinerary before reaching Russia. Commander of the Navy's Caspian flotilla, Rear Admiral Ahmad Reza Baqeri, said the overseas mission would last for 25 days. Iran and Russia have formed a military alliance in recent years, with their naval vessels making regular "friendly port calls". Earlier this month, Russian naval flotilla Makhachkala berthed at Iran's northern port city of Bandar Anzali as part of programs intended to boost military cooperation between the two sides.
