Two Iranian warships docked in Port Sudan on Saturday, marking the second port call by the Iranian navy in Sudan in five weeks.
According to Agence France Press (AFP), the Iranian navy said the 1,400 ton frigate Jamaran and the 4,700 ton support ship Bushehr “docked in Port Sudan, after successfully carrying out their assignments in the Red Sea and were greeted by high-ranking Sudanese naval commanders.”
The Sudanese military said it was a “normal” port call, and Sudanese army spokesman Sawarmi Khaled Saad had initially announced the warship visit for November 30.
“It is part of diplomatic and military exchanges between the two countries, and will last for three days”, he told reporters on Friday night.
A pair of Iranian navy vessels, the supply ship Kharg and corvette Admiral Naghdi, spent about two days at Port Sudan in late October, AFP reported.
The step comes weeks after the Zionist entity launched a strike against the Yarmouk military factory in the Sudanese capital.
