Iran's official news agency reported Sunday that the country's navy plans to establish a new base near Pakistan's border in the Sea of Oman.


The plans are part of Iran's ambitions to exert its naval power outside the Persian Gulf, including sending warships to the Mediterranean and claiming it might someday have ships in the Atlantic.

Iran has conducted numerous naval drills in past years as it increases its presence in regional waterways.
