Iran Constructing 2 Large Naval Zones, 3 Bases on Makran Coasts: Navy Commander

Iran has started the construction of two large naval zones and three bases on the coasts of Makran, located in Iran's southeastern region, next to the Oman Sea.

“We are building two naval zones and three naval bases on Makran coasts, and this is in line with our policy of making a return to the sea,” Iranian Navy Commander Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari said at a press conference in Tehran on Monday, as quoted by Tasnim News agency.

Developing naval capabilities on the Makran coast has been one of Iran's top priorities since 2014, when Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei called for the country to secure the region.

Rear Admiral Sayyari also highlighted the powerful presence of his forces in the international waters and said the Navy has dispatched 44 flotilla of warships to high seas over the past years.
