Pakistan, Iran to conduct joint naval exercises

IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Islamabad, March 8, IRNA -- Pakistan and Iran, who enjoy long-standing
brotherly relations, will carry out joint naval exercises aimed at 
further strengthening ties between the navies of the two countries, it
was officially announced on Tuesday. 
"This, apart from a good opportunity for personnel of two navies 
to benefit from each other`s experiences, also provides an arena to 
improve upon naval procedures and doctrines," said a Pakistan Navy 
statement carried by the state APP news agency. 
The Iranian naval ships Iris Bandar Abbas and Iris Larak will hold
joint exercises with Pakistani navy, it said. 
"The exercise comes at a moment when Western media is all out to 
create a wedge between the time-tested relations between the two 
brotherly Muslim countries." 
Commenting on Pakistan`s Navy announcement, defense experts termed
it a timely step and said that it would not only annul the propaganda 
by the vested interests of a so-called chill in friendly relationship 
of the two states but also help maintain peace in the volatile region 
of South Asia, the report said.
