Iran Navy Ships Leave China

Will Soon Dock at Colombo
Iran Navy ships IRINS Sabalan (73) frigate and IRINS Kharg (431) replenishment ship of the 24th Fleet task force today left the Chinese port city of Zhangjiagang, heading for the Strait of Malacca and will soon dock at the Port of Colombo in Sri Lanka, the Iranian navy announced today.

“This fleet is still present in the Pacific Ocean but will head for the Strait of Malacca and soon will dock at the Port of Colombo,” said Iran's Navy Commander Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari. (IRNA, 7 March)

Adm. Sayyari added that Iran will soon send its ships to the Atlantic Ocean as well.

“Iran’s presence in the Pacific Ocean is a prelude to [Iran’s] presence in the Atlantic Ocean”, said Sayyari.
