Baku-APA. A report on the official Iranian news agency says Iran is planning naval maneuvers in international waters near strategic Strait of Hormuz, where one-fifth of world oil supply passes, APA reports quoting Today's Zaman.

Iran threatened to close the strait over Western sanctions aimed at its suspect nuclear program but has not repeated the threat lately.

Adm. Sayyari said Tuesday Iran will fire missiles and deploy vessels and submarines during the six-day war games.
