In addition to the deployment announcement, the Iranian Navy Commander discussed upcoming naval exercises in the North Indian Ocean.

Admiral Irani revealed plans for two significant exercises in the south – a rescue and relief operation in collaboration with Oman, inviting participation from other nations, and a sustainable security exercise expanding its reach to encompass more countries from various continents.

The scope of these exercises, according to Admiral Irani, is set to extend across the northern Indian Ocean, reflecting Iran's commitment to fostering international cooperation in maritime security.
