Russia, China, and Iran Participate In War Drills

Date:

Russia, China, and Iran have launched some war drills that the three nations are participating in. The three nations are all seen as “enemies” to the West, and the United States, and all three have navy ships participating.

They are holding a joint exercise in the Arabian Sea this week, staging from the Port of Chah Bahar in the Gulf of Oman. The wargames, which are being dubbed the Maritime Security Belt, are scheduled to run from March 12-15 and involve vessels and aircraft from the three countries. Envoys from the militaries of Azerbaijan, India, Kazakhstan, Oman, Pakistan, and South Africa are in attendance as observers, according to a report by RT.

“The practical part of the exercise will take place in the waters of the Arabian Sea, specifically the Gulf of Oman,” the Russian Defense Ministry said in a statement on Monday. “The main purpose of the maneuvers is to ensure the safety of maritime economic activities.”

During the 2023 maneuvers, the three navies practiced sailing in formation together, conducted daytime and night-time artillery tests, and simulated freeing hostages from a ship taken by pirates and assisting a ship in distress.

The exercise area is near the entrance to the Persian Gulf, where much of the world’s oil deliveries originate from. On the other side of the Arabian Peninsula, off the coast of Yemen, the US and its allies have deployed multiple warships in an effort to stop the Houthis from interdicting Israeli-related maritime trade. Not only have they been unsuccessful, but the Houthis have since added British and American merchant vessels to their list of targets. –RT

These wargames began in 2019 as a joint venture between Moscow, Beijing, and Tehran. China missed the 2021 military drills but has participated in every exercise since.
