Russian Warships Dock in Iran's Southern Port

TEHRAN (FNA)- A detachment of the Russian Pacific Fleet warships docked in Iran's Southern port city of Bandar Abbas, the Iranian army announced on Sunday.



The Iranian Army's public relations office announced that the Russian fleet, comprised of Admiral Panteleyev anti-submarine destroyer and two logistic warships of Peresvet and Admiral Novelskoy with a total number of 712 crews, has entered the Army's first naval zone in Bandar Abbas.

The Iranian army said that the visit is aimed at the consolidation of the relations between Iran and Russia and expansion of military interactions between the two countries in the field of naval security.

The Voice of Russia had earlier reported that the Russian warships have left Vladivostok to do combat duty in the world oceans, and that they would have a short stop in Bandar Abbas en route to their mission zone.

The Russian Ministry of Defense announced then that it has begun forming a separate Mediterranean squadron.
