Iran, France navy commanders meet, confer on bilateral issues

Tehran, IRNA – Iranian Navy Commander Rear-Admiral Hossein Khanzadi and his French counterpart Admiral Pierre Vandier met and discussed issues of mutual interest on Wednesday.

The meeting took place on the sidelines of a meeting of the Indian Ocean Naval Symposium (IONS) on Reunion Island.
The Iranian navy commander said that Iran cannot understand the reason behind the presence of the coalition forces in the Persian Gulf region.
Khanzadi said that Iran is located in a strategic position in the northern Indian Ocean so that many geopolitical experts call the country the heart of the earth.
Today many vessels from the US and Europe, including France, are present in the Persian Gulf region, he said, adding that Iran is closely monitoring all the movements of the coalition forces. 
The French commander, for his part, hailed Iran’s performance during its presidency over the IONS. 
Vandier said that France has not been involved in any operation by the US forces in the region.
He noted that France and Europe have always been seeking to establish security in the region while avoiding any tension at the same time.  
Vandier said that he has heard Iran’s message and will convey the message to the French government.
