Rear Admiral Afshin Rezaei Haddad, the commander of Iran’s Fourth Maritime Zone, made the remark in an interview with Fars News Agency on Saturday.

The Iranian fleet of warships will dock at the Russian port city of Astrakhan in the near future upon an invitation by the Russian side.

A Russian naval fleet comprising two warships, Volgodonsk andMakhachkala, docked at the Iranian port city of Anzali on August 9 as part of the bid by Tehran and Moscow to boost maritime relations. It was the third visit of a Russian naval fleet to Iran.

Iran’s Navy also sent two warships to Russia in June 2013 to consolidate maritime relations between Tehran and Moscow.

Meanwhile, Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari, the head of the Iranian Navy, said any visit of a foreign naval fleet to Iran, including that of Russia, will be followed by a similar trip of an Iranian naval fleet to that country to carry out missions.

In the missions, the Iranian naval commander said, modern and new vessels from the Iranian Navy will be present to demonstrate the capabilities of the Iranian experts in manufacturing big vessels.
