“Iranian forces will most likely pay a visit to Russia in mid-October,” he added.

“The Russian navy flotilla consists of the two warships of Volgodonsk and Mahachkala,” Taranenko said, reiterating that the visit would continue for two days.

“The maritime relations between Russia and Iran will be expanded and we will proceed our official and unofficial visits to Iran,” Taranenko said.

He also voiced the Russia's readiness to hold a joint naval exercise during their stay.

Haddad also went on to say that the Russian forces are scheduled to visit Iranian navy units in the area.
