Bandar Abbas (IP) - Iran's navy commander says the 75th navy flotilla had accomplished its mission, achieving its pre-determined objectives.

Iran PressIran news: "Certainly we achieved all the goals we had set earlier," Commander of the Iranian Navy Rear Admiral Shahram Irani told the reporters on Sunday on the sidelines of the welcoming ceremony of the 75th navy flotilla's arrival to port Bandar Abbas.

"The most important goal we had was to prove that roaring water could not be an obstacle in our way and prevent us from moving and having a powerful presence anywhere in the world because the water environment is much harder, especially when it is stormy. Additionally, you are thousands of kilometers away from your homeland," he noted.

"In this mission, the length of the route was important, which was about 45,000 kilometers, and the flotilla crossed three oceans of the world, two of which were very rough, but it managed to pass through them," the Iranian navy commander said.

Iran indigenizes the marine propulsion system

"In the field of marine propulsion, which is a system of general and stable maritime mobility, we tried to achieve complete and 100% self-sufficiency in this area, which, thank God, has happened, and its feature is that all sailors can use this drift system, whether military or civilian," Admiral Irani noted.

In an unprecedented naval mission in Iran's history, the country's 75th Navy Flotilla, including its largest warship, IRINS Makran, and destroyer IRINS Sahand, accomplished its mission after returning to Iran and was officially welcomed by top Iranian commanders.

The two-ship Iranian Navy group returned home after traveling 44,000 km in the international waters through the West Coast of Africa and the Baltic Sea this summer.

Iran's largest warship, IRINS Makran, and fully indigenized destroyer IRINS Sahand left the Middle East in May for a naval mission in the Indian Ocean, South Atlantic, and North Atlantic after 133 days of navigation to enhance naval authority, securing naval lines, and strengthening maritime diplomacy.
