Iran group of naval fleets docks at Sudan port

In line with the Islamic Republic of Iran’s strategy of expanding its naval presence in international waters, Iran Navy’s 22nd fleet of warships has called at a Sudanese northeastern port in the Red Sea.

The fleet which comprises Kharg helicopter carrier and Admiral Naqdi destroyer arrived at the Sudanese port on Monday.

The Navy’s 22nd fleet was dispatched to the coasts of Djibouti and Bab el-Mandeb Strait in late September to convey Iran’s message of peace to the regional countries and maintain the security of shipping corridors against maritime terrorism.

The Iranian commanders of the fleet are scheduled to meet with Sudanese Navy commanders during their stay in the North African country.
Iran's Navy has been multiplying its naval presence in the international waters since last year, deploying vessels to the Indian Ocean and dispatching, in February 2011, two ships via the Suez Canal to the Mediterranean Sea for the first time.

In addition, in line with the international efforts to combat piracy, the Iranian Navy has been conducting anti-piracy patrols in the Gulf of Aden since November 2008 to safeguard the vessels involved in maritime trade, especially the ships and oil tankers owned or leased by Iran.

The Gulf of Aden, which links the Indian Ocean with the Suez Canal and the Mediterranean Sea, is the quickest route for thousands of vessels traveling annually between Asia, Europe and the Americas.

  • thats what the Israeli Air Force want. Sudan is a sovereign nation, they can't do a bomb run whenever they feel like it.

    battle ships a Iranian submarines of course is more an act. however, an optical or radar air defense systems will be more useful here.

    i know for a fact that Iran manufactures a range of unmanned fully-automated AA Guns, a few of those won't hurt -except for the Israeli Air Force that is.. -!

  • Iran was manufacturing missiles in the Sudanese residential area, these missile were smuggled into Gaza.

    The factory is gone but the attack was a warning to Iranians since the Sudan (Khartoum) is further flight distance then any of the Iranian reactors from Israel.
