Despite sanctions, Iran’s navy reached big progress in all fields including manufacturing of ‘Jamaran’, ‘Damavand’, and ‘Sahand’ destroyers, the commander added.

He praised the navy presence in the international waters aimed at protecting naval routes and providing security for trade vessels and oil tankers.
