Iranian Navy Sends Fleet of Warships to Russia

Iranian Navy Sends Fleet of Warships to Russia

The Iranian Navy on Tuesday dispatched a flotilla of warships to Russia's Makhachkala, the capital city of the Republic of Dagestan.

The Iranian fleet which includes the home-made Damavand destroyer and Darafsh missile-launching warship left Iran's territorial waters in the Caspian Sea for Russia on Tuesday morning with a message of peace and friendship to the Caspian Sea littoral states.

The Iranian Navy's Northern Fleet had earlier sent two flotillas of warships to Russia and one to Azerbaijan.

Last October, a fleet of Russian warships docked in the Caspian Sea port of Anzali in Northern Iran as part of the two countries' efforts to widen their existing military cooperation.

The Russian fleet, carrying a massage of “peace and friendship”, was welcomed by Iranian naval commanders and staff, officials said.

At a ceremony to welcome the Russian navies to Iran, senior Iranian Navy Commander Rear Admiral Afshin Rezayee Haddad said the visit came routine as Iranian and Russian warships pay reciprocal visits to each other's ports.

In October 2015, Iran sent its second fleet of warships, including Damavand destroyer, to the Russian territorial waters.

The Iranian fleet of warships which included Joshan (Shield) and Peykan (Arrow) warships and the hi-tech Damavand destroyer berthed in Russia's Astarakhan port for a 12-day stay that bore the message of peace and friendship.
