Iran and China began a joint naval exercise in the Gulf. The military drill comes at a time of heightened tension between the Iranian and US military in the Gulf and is likely to be a cause of concern for Washington.
An Iranian destroyer and two Chinese destroyers are among the vessels that will participate in the exercise, which will take place in the eastern portion of the Strait of Hormuz and the Sea of Oman, according to IRNA. Some 700 Iranian navy personnel will be participating in the drill.
Two Chinese warships docked at Iran’s Bandar Abbas port to take part in a joint naval exercise in the Gulf for the first time in 2014.
