Iran’s Navy is planning to extend its presence in international waters near the South Pole, Navy chief Rear Adm. Habibollah Sayyari said on Saturday.

 

“We have the capability to hoist Iran’s flags in different regions from the North Pole to the South Pole and we are preparing plans for presence near the South Pole,” Sayyari was quoted by Press TV as saying.

Iran has the right to be present in international waters, he said, adding that it “will never enter the maritime borders of other states and will not allow anybody to enter even a centimeter into our territorial waters.”

 

The Islamic republic’s Navy has also announced plans to expand its international presence into the Atlantic Ocean.
