Iran seeks constructive marine interaction with Russia
Iran seeks to bolster “good and constructive” marine cooperation with Russia, an Iranian naval commander says, Press TV reports.
Captain Mohsen Sheidayee, the commander of a flotilla of Iranian warships, currently on a friendly visit to Makhachkala, the capital city of the Republic of Dagestan in Russia, made the comments in a meeting with the commander of the Russian Caspian Flotilla.
“The purpose of this trip is [to strengthen] good and constructive interaction with the focus on peace,” Sheidayee said.
He noted that the country had succeeded in making great progress by relying on the know-how of young Iranian experts.
“We are proud to have turned threats into opportunities during the time of sanctions,” he added.
