A top Iranian military commander says an Iranian naval fleet, including two ships, has entered the Atlantic Ocean, saying Iran is entitled under international law to have a naval presence in international waters.
In remarks on Thursday, Deputy Chief of Army for Coordination Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari said the two ships, including the Makran port ship and the domestically-built Sahand destroyer, have managed to reach the Atlantic Ocean without calling at other countries’ ports, marking the first time the Iranian navy has gotten this far into the Atlantic.
