Russian flotilla to dock in Iran's Caspian Sea

TEHRAN, Aug. 09 (MNA) – A Russian Navy flotilla will arrive in Iran’s Fourth Naval Zone to ‘consolidate friendly ties’ between Iran and Russia.

Mehr News received the story of Russian sources who said that the flotilla also would seek to boost maritime interactions with the Islamic Republic of Iran, with a general emphasis on the Caspian Sea as a ‘Sea of Friendship and Peace.’

This will be a third such Russian flotilla visit to Iranian waters. In 2007 and 2012, first and second flotilla from Russia visited Iran with the same objectives. In June 2013, an Iranian flotilla of Navy ships set off to Russian territorial waters in Astrakhan.
