TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iranian Navy Commander Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari underlined the defense capabilities and capacities of the Navy and its success in developing the production of combat vessels.
Speaking to reporters on Tuesday on the sidelines of military parades in Tehran, held to commemorate the start of the Sacred Defense Week, Rear Admiral Sayyari pointed to the parades, saying, “What you saw in the parades today was only a part of our capabilities.”
He said in order to have powerful presence in the high seas, the navy has developed the production lines of its destroyers and combat vessels.
