Reporter: "Iran, Russia, and China have displayed their capabilities during the joint defensive naval drill called Maritime Security Belt 2024. More than 25 warships have conducted these exercises, under the command of the Dena Warship in the northern Indian Ocean.


"In this drill, the Iranian Navy and IRGC warships – along with the Russian and Chinese warships – were in attack formation and carried out commands from the Dena. All the units engaged air and ground simulated targets. Soon, Iranian, Chinese, and Russian units will begin night operations against targets in the northern Indian Ocean.
