03-01-2011 09:02 BJT

Iranian Admiral, Habi-bollah Sa-yari, says that his country's two navy ships anchored off the coast of Syria was a message of peace, and not an act of aggression within the middle east.

Admiral Habi-bollah Sa-yari, Iranian Naval Commander, said, "I would like to point out that Iran is sending a message of peace and security in the region and, in fact, we are stressing on this message. We stress, as well, that the strategy of the Iranian Islamic Republic is to reinforce our capabilities in order to defend ourselves and we do not have any aggressive intention towards other countries."

The two Iranian warships arrived in Syria on Thursday after they received permission to pass through the Suez Canal. According to an Egyptian News website, authorities agreed on the canal transit after they got an Iranian reassurance that the ships were not carrying any nuclear or chemical materials.
