Iran wants to hold a joint naval exercise with Russia and China before the end of the year amid rising tensions caused by U.S. bombings on Iran-allied paramilitary groups and Houthi rebel attacks in Yemen.

Iran’s Naval Maneuvers

Iran’s navy chief, Rear Adm. Shahram Irani, declared on Monday the intention to hold joint naval exercises with Russia and China, emphasizing the importance of cooperation in protecting regional security and shared interests. The announcement follows previous collaborative efforts such as the “Security Bond 2023” exercise conducted in the Sea of Oman.

Recent U.S. strikes targeting Houthis in Yemen and Iran-allied militia forces in Iraq and Syria have exacerbated tensions in the region. The strikes were prompted by perceived threats posed to U.S. Navy ships and merchant vessels, heightening concerns over maritime security.

Iran has condemned the U.S. attacks, denouncing them as arbitrary and adventurist actions that threaten international peace and security. Accusations have been leveled against the U.S. and its allies, with Iran’s foreign ministry spokesperson calling for accountability and labeling Israel as the “criminal Zionist regime.”

Beyond the immediate security concerns, the joint naval exercise underscores the growing strategic partnership between Iran, Russia, and China. As geopolitical dynamics evolve, such collaborations signal a concerted effort to assert influence and counterbalance Western hegemony in the Middle East.
