BandarAbbas, IRNA - Iranian Navy 77th fleet ending expedition at high seas docked at the southern port of Bandar Abbas on Wednesday.

The flotilla arrived at the port on Wednesday after conducting a 77-day expedition at high seas.

The Navy Fleet proceeded 10,500 nautical miles during 77 days expedition.

Over the past few years, Iran's Navy has increased its presence in free waters to safeguard naval routes and provide security for merchant vessels and tankers.

The Iranian Navy, in line with international efforts against piracy, has also been conducting patrols in the Gulf of Aden since November 2008 in order to protect cargo vessels and oil tankers owned or leased by Iran or other countries.

Iran’s Navy has managed to foil several pirate attacks on both Iranian and foreign tankers during the expedition.
