Iran's IRGC Looking To Establish Permanent Naval Base In Indian Ocean

Speedboats of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) are seen during major drills in the Strait of Hormuz in the Persian Gulf code-named the Great Prophet 9 on February 25, 2015.

Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) plans to set up a permanent naval base in the Indian Ocean by the end of March 2021, the IRGC Navy said on June 22.

“The IRGC is looking to establish a permanent base in the Indian Ocean by the end of the current Iranian year,” Admiral Alireza Tangsiri said, according to the Mehr news agency.

“Through its powerful presence in the Sea of Oman and the Indian Ocean, the IRGC will no longer leave any room for such acts of infringement,” he noted.

Admiral Tangsiri said that the move would be in line with the guidelines provided by Iran’s leader and commander-in-chief Ayatollah Khamenei.
