Two Iran Navy warships to dock at Sudan port: Sudanese Army
Sudan's Army has announced that two Iranian warships are set to dock at a Sudanese port in the Red Sea in line with the Tehran-Khartoum military cooperation.

"Two Iranian warships would… visit Port Sudan harbor on November 30 and would stay at the harbor for three days within the military maritime cooperation," Sudan's official SUNA news agency quoted Sudanese Army Spokesman Sawarmi Khaled Saad as saying.

According to Saad, the vessels will receive "fuel and other logistic materials" during their visit.

Last month, two Iranian warships spent about two days in Port Sudan in a visit which Saad said supported "strong political, security and diplomatic relations between the two states".

The Iranian Navy’s 22nd fleet was dispatched to the coasts of Djibouti and Bab el-Mandeb Strait in late September to convey Iran’s message of peace to the regional countries and maintain the security of shipping lines against maritime terrorism.

Iran's Navy has been increasing its naval presence in the international waters since last year.

In addition, in line with the international efforts to combat piracy, the Iranian Navy has been conducting anti-piracy patrols in the Gulf of Aden since November 2008 to safeguard the vessels involved in maritime trade, especially the ships and oil tankers owned or leased by Iran.

The Gulf of Aden, which links the Indian Ocean with the Suez Canal and the Mediterranean Sea, is the fastest route for thousands of vessels traveling annually between Asia, Europe and the Americas.
