A submarine-escorted naval fleet set sailed from southern Iran for Mumbai and Colombo yesterday.

Iran has deployed one of its heavy submarines to South Asian waters as part of a larger naval fleet, according to the semi-official Fars News Agency, which has close ties with Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps.

On Wednesday afternoon, Fars quoted Admiral Siyavash Jarreh, the Lieutenant Commander of the Iranian Navy for Operations, as saying, “The Iranian Navy will dispatch the ultra-heavy Tareq-class submarine, ‘Younus’ as part of the Navy’s 28th flotilla of warships to the countries of East Asia.”

When we inquired about the matter from Navy Spokesperson Commander Kosala Warnakulasooriya stated that a fleet of Iranian ships are scheduled to reach Sri Lanka waters.
