In the coming days, Iran will give another submarine to Naval Forces for exploitation, Commander of the Iranian Army Major General Ataollah Salehi said during visiting Iranian port city of Bender-Abbas, ISNA news agency reports.
"The main purpose of my visit is familiarizing with the repair and production of submarines and ships, as well as monitoring the process of construction of the submarine, which in the next ten days will be given to the Naval Forces for exploitation," he said.
Salehi said Iranian Naval Forces use submarines produced in Iran - "Al-Gadir", "Noah", "Yunis" and "Tarig".
He also spoke regarding inspection of ships in connection with sanctions against Iran and said that inspection of ships is unacceptable for Iran. "There is no difference between Somalia's pirates and the U.S. pirates for Iran," Salehi said.
