Tehran, Iran, April 16
By Mehdi Sepahvand - Trend:
Iran and Pakistan are going to hold a series of joint naval drills in the coming days, Iran's Naval Force Commander Habibollah Sayyari said.
Today Iran is host to a naval fleet from Pakistan which has docked at Bandar Abbas, he told Alalam TV April 16.
Sayyari added that the fleet will stay in Iran for 3-4 days, in the end of which period, drills will be performed.
Last year, Sayyari had said the Islamic Republic of Iran may hold joint drills with other countries.
"If the Navy sends its fleet to other countries, it will also put holding joint drills on the agenda," he had emphasized.
Two years ago, the Iranian Navy held joint drills with naval fleets of Russia and China.
