Commander of Iran’s navy Sayari discussed the navy’s ability to be present in free waters and oceans, stressing that this presence was possible due to a strategy formulated by the Supreme Leader and at his instructions. Sayari claims that three years ago, the navy was only present in the Persian Gulf region and eastern Strait of Hormuz but under the directive of Ayatollah Khamenei, the navy was now present in the north Indian ocean, the Red Sea and the Suez Canal. Sayari emphasized that the north Indian Ocean is an area of strategic importance for Iran, and Iran must demonstrate presence in this area.
