Iran plans to once again dispatch a submarine and a warship, to the Gulf of Aden and Red Sea, the country's navy commander said Tuesday.
Admiral Habibollah Sayari said the dispatch of the 15th fleet is for patrolling in high seas and displaying Iran's navy capabilities of the Islamic
Republic, the news network Press TV reported.
Without giving further details on the exact date, Sayari added that the dispatch would also be a symbolic move to convey the message of peace and
friendship to all countries.
In June, Iranian submarines and war ships were dispatched to the Gulf of Aden and Red Sea to collect data and identify other countries' warships.
