Iran set to hold joint military drills with China
Iran is fully prepared to hold joint military drills with China, the chief of staff of the Iranian Armed Forces, Major General Mohammad Baqeri, says.
“The Islamic Republic of Iran is completely ready to expand and deepen defense-military cooperation between the two countries including holding joint military maneuvers,” Baqeri said in a meeting with Chinese Defense Minister General Chang Wanquan in Tehran on Monday. He hailed China’s constructive role in international equations and called on the country to continue with its part in order to counter the hegemony and aggression of the arrogant world powers.
Pointing to the cordial relations between Tehran and Beijing, the Iranian commander stressed the importance of improving strategic cooperation on regional and international developments.
