Report: Pakistani vessels at Iranian naval drill

TEHRAN, Iran — Iran's official news agency is reporting that Pakistani naval vessels have arrived at the southern Iranian port of Bandar Abbas for an upcoming naval maneuver.

The report Sunday by IRNA quoted Iranian Rear Adm. Shahram Irani as saying the fleet will have "presence" in the maneuver that will began on Tuesday east of the strategic Strait of Hormuz, through which one fifth of the world's oil supply passes.

The report said Pakistani vessels include a warship, a submarine and a logistics vessel.

The report did not say whether it would be "joint" drill, nor did it elaborate on its scale or duration. It said the Pakistani fleet will leave after four days.

In the past, regional countries have had a presence at similar Iranian maneuvers as observers.
