“The Pakistan Navy flotilla was sent from Bandar Abbas to the region to hold a combined naval exercise in the waters of the Persian Gulf and the Sea of Oman”, Staff Officer of the First Naval District of the Islamic Republic of Iran Navy Captain Reza Sheibani said on Tuesday. He added that the joint drill was meant to improve the combat capabilities of the two countries’ naval forces and exchange information and military expertise.

Sheibani further said the drills included aerial and maritime transfers, and a passing exercise (PASSEX) — meant to ensure that the navies are able to communicate and cooperate in times of war or humanitarian relief — in the waters of the Persian Gulf and the Sea of Oman during the war game.

He went on to say that the Iranian naval units, consisting of Alborz destroyer, a missile-launching vessel and a helicopter, together with marine and logistics units of the Pakistan Navy were present in the joint naval exercise.

The Pakistani flotilla berthed at the southern Iranian port city of Bandar Abbas on Saturday for a three-day visit, and was officially received by the Iranian Navy’s officers. The visiting flotilla consists of two vessels and is under the command of Commodore Khan Mehmood Asif.

During the visit, the Pakistan Navy delegates held meetings with Iranian Navy and military officials and discussed mutual areas of interest.

  • Long live the friendship between Pakistan and Iran. In recent years, Iran had been getting closer to India, but they have seen how deceitful these Indians are and have let them down to please the Yankees. Now they are reintegrating into the MUSLIM worl. This is good news.

  • Iran & Pakistan, both dominated by the anti-muslim China. Good Luck for your "MUSLIM world" !

  • Iran was perhaps one day, forty years ago, a Muslim country, but it is not any more. It’s over, no Islam, no Allah. Alhamdulullah

  • Friendship between Iran and Pakistan?! Ha, ha ha! This is a joke or what. Pakistan is waging war against Iran in Baluchistan on behalf of Saudi Arabia. Pakistan is the slave of Saudi Arabia, Iran’s arch-enemy.

  • Friendship between states has no value, what counts is friendship between peoples. This friendship between individuals can only be made on the strict condition that they share the same feelings. It requires that both ends of the string vibrate in unison to provoke reasoning. To vibrate at the same frequency and in phase, there must be a conductor who sets the pace and towards whom the eyes turn. Muslims are fortunate to have such a conductor: the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran. Unfortunately, discord is being created among Muslims by the stupid wars between Shiites and Sunnis.

  • Iranians are false muslim they are majoosi . they worship fire and trees and mountains. their goal is to destroy islam from within.. never trust a iranian they are liars.

  • Iranians are the best muslims . Mohammad himself spoke very good of us and telled the Arabs to learn from the Iranians because we are much intelligent than the Arabs. that is why we understand better the instructions of Islam the profet give to us.

  • China and Russia should create a joint naval force with Iran and Pakistan to pull the amricans out of the Persian Gulf.
