"We have invited different countries to participate in the exercises, Russia and China have so far expressed their readiness to do so," the naval commander said.
The commander of the Iranian navy added that his forces had recently been participating in a number of naval maneuvers with a number of countries.
The Russian ambassador to Iran had said in August 2021 that his country would conduct joint naval maneuvers with China and Iran in 2022, with the aim of "ensuring regional stability and combating the phenomenon of piracy."
In December 2019, the three countries conducted a joint naval exercise in the Indian Ocean and the Gulf of Oman, training in rescuing stranded ships, implementing a rapid response to incidents of naval attacks and shooting at different targets, and it is likely that the next training will be similar.
In September 2021, China and Russia also conducted a joint military exercise called "Peace Mission 2021", as part of strengthening cooperation between the two countries, which are today the main threat to the US military.
The "Mako" news website stated that the integration of the Iranians into this alliance on the basis of common interests raises fears in Israel.
Iranian television had broadcast a ceremony for the signing of security cooperation between Iran and China, which includes China's investment in Iranian projects and the deepening of military intervention in the Middle East, in return for a steady supply of oil over a period of 25 years.
According to Chinese as well as Russian reports, they are helping the Iranians with their ballistic missile programs, a matter that raises concerns in Israel as well as in the United States.
