    Iran’s Navy Commander Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari says the country is establishing a new base in the Sea of Oman near Pakistan's border to boost the Islamic Republic’s defense capabilities.

    “The naval base, which is under construction, is situated in the Gwatr Gulf on our country's farthest eastern shores bordering Pakistan," Sayyari said on Sunday.

    "The Iranian navy has so far had no military presence in the area, but now, we will be present in the region to defend the interests and maritime resources of our country and exercise a tighter control over the traffic in the region," Sayyari noted.

    Iran's Navy has been seeking to increase its naval presence in international waters, as well.

    Iran’s Navy has also held several military maneuvers in order to display the country’s capabilities in defending its maritime borders.

    The Islamic Republic has repeatedly assured other nations, especially its neighbors, that its military might poses no threat to other countries, insisting that its defense doctrine is based on deterrence.

    Headline of linked article reads different from thread title:

    It would be an economic competitor that is definetly a fact and one that would be closer
    to the Middle East market that China using Pakistan was hoping to get.

    To show its domestic audience (also preferably the west asian street as well) that sanctions are not having any bad effects whatsoever, iran is trying/saying a lot of things nowadays. Seriously, even by trying so many things they may fail miserably. They must emulate their close ally NoKo and concentrate on 1 or 2 things.

    The shiite/sunni rift divide and conquer strategy will play out with the
    west taking the Sunni side.

    ^^^^ More than the sunni/shia rivalry west asia is actually witnessing a new round of persian/arab/turk rivalry which is going on from centuries. If iran was so concerned about shias, then what are they doing about shia killings in pakistan. Even iran under safavids turned shia, to differentiate themselves from ottomans. Yes, iran will camouflage its policy to portray itself as shia leader to get as many allies it can but their main goal is to be numero uno in the region. The mullahs are trying a different way (using religion directly) to achieve what the shah also tried (being a US chela and also building iran as major military power around the gulf).

    Raptors landing in UAE would be a headline of:

    US deploys F-22 fighter jets to UAE: officials

    Not Raptors in UAE to Bomb Iran.

    I believe people shouldn't be allowed to change titles of the news articles. Only shows the dishonesty they have in mind.
