According to Tasnim news agency, the move is aimed to highlight the Iranian navy's "powerful presence in international waters."
The Iranian military also refuted mainstream media reports portraying the Islamic republic's Naval Forces as "weak."
In recent years, the Iranian fleet increased its presence in international waters to secure naval routes and protect ships and oil tankers from pirates.
Last November, Sayyari spoke about Iran's plans to send ships to the Atlantic Ocean for the first time; the 44 flotilla of the Iranian Naval Forces entered the Atlantic Ocean after visiting one of the ports in South Africa.
Coincidence or not, the statement came after a number of incidents involving the US navy and Iranian ships in the Arabian Gulf.
