Iran’s navy is building a new base near its Gulf of Oman border with Pakistan, state-run Fars news agency reported, citing Iranian Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari.

Iran’s navy doesn’t yet have a presence in the area, Fars said. The base is needed to defend national interests and monitor sea traffic, Sayyari said.
