Bandar Abbas, IRNA -- Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces said on Monday that the enemies threaten navigation by deploying small espionage units in their latest attempt to compensate for the reduction in their forces in the Middle East.

Speaking at the ceremony for the deployment of surface and subsurface battle equipment enhanced in the Iranian Navy's plants, Major General Mohammad Baqeri said that Iran believed that freedom of navigation should be equally protected for everyone and it would defend the right for the Iranian nation.

We announce via international channels and filing a suit in the International Maritime Organization (IMO) that we wouldn't tolerate such unites along our path and would do the same we previously did with such equipment, General Baqeri warned.

The commander said that Iran wouldn't tolerate the Zionist regime's joining the United States Central Command (CENTCOM) which poses certain threats against Iran.

Iranian youth managed to manufacture new weapons in the fields of defense, vessels, missiles, and drones and upgrade the old equipment during the severest sanctions against the country, Baqeri underscored.

The chief of staff boasted the Iranian Navy's presence in the high seas as a force to ensure security of navigation in general and protect Iran's maritime fleet, oil exports, and imported cargo.

During the ceremony, four vessels enhanced by the Navy's industrial units were recommissioned and a new plant was launched.
