Iran says two navy ships returned from unprecedented global voyage
"Today, we can be present in all the ocean zones of the world with authority whenever the order is issued."

The commander of Iran’s navy says that two ships it sent around Africa to Russia have returned. This “most historic military event at sea was completed with authority and success by sending a combat fleet consisting of the Iranian destroyer Sahand and the ship Makran that was able to end its mission and return home,” he said.

Iran now says this shows its navy can be present anywhere globally. Iran’s navy has historically not been very large and has suffered numerous setbacks recently, with one ship catching fire and sinking and another being sunk by its own naval gunners during a drill. Iran’s new naval commander Shahram Irani celebrated the recent success of his fleet. He detailed how the two ships made a historic journey to Russia and then returned. He says they sailed 45,000 km.
