Newscast Media TEHRAN—The Iranian Navy's 29th fleet of warships, comprised of the Khark logistic helicopter carrier and the Sabalan destroyer, set sail on Tuesday from the southern port city of Bandar Abbas for the Atlantic Ocean on a three-month voyage.  

It is the Navy's first-ever mission to the Atlantic Ocean.  

During a ceremony held before the dispatching of the warships, Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari, the commander of the Iranian Navy, said that the warships are tasked with maintaining the security of Iranian vessels in international waters. 

Meanwhile, Israel's Benjamin Netanyahu has vowed to stop Iran's ambitions to acquire a nuclear weapon.

"Iran's military nuclear program must be stopped, and Iran's military nuclear program will be stopped," Netanyahu said at a joint news conference with his Canadian counterpart Stephen Harper, without saying how, according to Lebanon's Al-Manar News Agency. (pop-up)

Tehran Times reports that Iranian Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari said the Iranian warships are sent to international waters to show the might of the Iranian Navy, adding that the Islamic Republic of Iran is today one of the most important countries that maintains the security of shipping routes in the Gulf of Aden and the Bab-el-Mandeb.      Add Comments>>
