TEHRAN, Oct. 25 (MNA) – Navy commander has said Iran’s navy can prevent insecurity in the Caspian Sea and would not allow presence of anyone other than neighboring countries in the sea.

Pointing to the deployment of an Iranian fleet to Russia and its docking at the Caspian Sea port of Astrakhan on October 22 with the mission 'to promote peace and friendship,' Habibollah Sayyari said, “being the largest lake on earth, the Caspian Sea holds a special place in the world.”

Sayyari referred to the interests and multiple resources of neighboring countries in the Caspian Sea and added: “the Islamic Republic of Iran owns interests in the Caspian Sea and must maintain its authority in there.”

The commander deemed the Caspian Sea as important to Iran stating that, “the sea is vital to other countries as well and we need to make progress based on the resources of the sea.”

“The Caspian Sea might become the center for conflict, insecurity, piracy, drug trafficking or smuggling as well as environmental issues,” said Sayyari asserting, “the see should remain free of these threats to remain the sea of peace and friendship.”

He further emphasized the share of neighbors in the resources of the sea, saying "the power of Iran’s Navy together with other countries will prevent all bad events in the Caspian Sea maintaining peace and security."
