Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Mohammad Baqeri on Saturday hailed the navy forces’ achievements.
He made the remarks in a meeting with the navy forces’ top commanders.
Studies show that Iran’s navy forces have experienced a significant growth during the rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari command, Baqeri added.
He said that there are many volunteers in the navy forces who are keen to join the defenders of the holy shrines (Iran’s military advisors in Syria and Iraq).
Shiraz Warship is under construction which is a big step forward in the intelligence field, the commander noted.
He urged promotion of surveillance over enemy activities by using the unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV).
Iran should update its defensive doctrine at sea in order to enhance its deterrence power, Baqeri added.
