The drills will be held in an expanse of northern coasts of the Gulf of Oman in the southeast of Iran down to the Indian Ocean, said Moqaddam.
The drills aim to display Iran's capacity to establish security in the region and show its powerful presence in the high seas, he added.
Iran's state-of-the-art hardware, such as naval vessels, submarines, surface-to-sea missiles, drones and electronic warfare equipment, will participate in the naval exercise, the deputy commander said. ■
