"We do not need other countries for providing equipment… We managed to make good progress in building missile-launching warships, destroyers and submarines and we could provide the required equipment," Sayyari said.

He also referred to Iran's mighty presence in high seas, and said, "Today, we can protect the country's transportation lines with dignity in high seas, specially in the Gulf of Aden and the Red Sea affected by piracy."
