I wouldn't read too much into Iranian warships visiting ports in the Red Sea. Iran has been deploying ships on anti-piracy patrols for several years
and goodwill visits are nothing new.
What I do expect is that the Iranian Navy will deploy ships into the Atlantic possibly during 2013. Expect a transit through the Suez into the
Mediterranean and obviously out through the Gibraltar Strait. Obviously Iran, with its recent warship deployments to the Mediterranean, has been
working up to an Atlantic deployment. I can't see any chance of Iran attempting to escort vessels into Gaza. The Iranians will simply transit the
Suez, make a few good will visits, and make an excursion into the Atlantic. Nothing will happen as per the previous Iranian warship visits to the
Iran to Hold Exercise in Atlantic Ocean. In addition, Iran will deploy its naval assets to the Atlantic Ocean with the view to demonstrate its
combat capability, said the admiral. Sayyari declared in Sept 2012 that Iranian Navy would expand its presence in international waters in order to
protect Tehran's interests, reports REGNUM.
