Commander: Pirates Hiding Due to Scary Presence of Iranian Navy
Pirate attack on cargo ships has now become a rare scene in the region due to the powerful deployment of the Iranian warships, Iran’s Navy Commander Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari said.
“Pirates have left an impact on nations’ economies and the Islamic Republic of Iran’s Navy has played a continued active role in the establishment of security and if today we see that there is no news about the ominous phenomenon of piracy, it is indebted to the firm and powerful presence of the (Iranian) Navy,” Sayyari said in Tehran on Wednesday.
Elsewhere, he underlined that Makaran coasts on the rims of the Persian Gulf are of paramount importance to Iran as far as using international waters and marine wealth are concerned, and said, “Aside from the importance of the Persian Gulf and the Strait of Hormuz, using the Makaran coasts we can sail to the South Pole given the coasts’ adjacency to the free oceans and seas.”
