Tehran Times - - POLITICS -

TEHRAN – The Ira­nian Navy has al­ready dis­patched 58 fleets to the In­dian Ocean and the Gulf of Aden.

Navy Chief Hos­sein Khan­zadi said on Tues­day that the move was aimed to se­cure the ships and fight piracy in those wa­ters, ISNA re­ported.

“We’ve had fully in­de­pen­dent op­er­a­tions in fight­ing piracy, thou­sands of kilo­me­ters away from our naval bor­ders to achieve se­cu­rity and free­dom of nav­i­ga­tion,” the rear ad­mi­ral said.

“We were so suc­cess­ful in this re­gard that the in­ter­na­tional com­mu­nity was un­able not to give us credit … The In­ter­na­tional Mar­itime Or­ga­ni­za­tion has is­sued con­sec­u­tive acknowledgements to Ira­nian de­stroy­ers,” he added.
