Trilateral naval drills between China, Russia and Iran started on Friday

Friday 21st of  January

China, Russia and Iran will hold joint naval drills on Friday, a public relations official from Iran’s armed forces told semi-official ISNA news agency on Thursday.

The “2022 Marine Security Belt” exercise will take place in the north of the Indian Ocean and is the third joint naval drill between the three countries, Mostafa Tajoldin added. Since coming to office last June, Iran’s hardline President Ebrahim Raisi has pursued a “look east” policy to deepen ties with China and Russia. Tehran joined the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation in September, a central Asian security body led by Beijing and Moscow.  China, Russia and Iran started joint naval drills in 2019, and will continue them in the future, Tajoldin said.

“The purpose of this drill is to strengthen security and its foundations in the region, and to expand multilateral cooperation between the three countries to jointly support world peace, maritime security and create a maritime community with a common future,”

the Iranian official told ISNA.

The key nations that are opposed to the West are coming together in a show of force. They are all sensing weakness in the West and have therefore decided to show their own military prowess and abilities as they prepare for conflict.

The Bible says that Russia and Iran will be allied together when they invade Israel in the war detailed in Ezekiel 38. China isn’t mentioned there but the Bible is interested in nations that impact Israel directly – and due to distance China clearly cannot do this to the extent Russia and Iran can. Daniel 11 also says that Russia will come with ”many ships”. Russia on Thursday announced sweeping naval drills in several parts of the world. The exercise will involve over 140 warships and more than 60 aircraft, and will be conducted in many areas including the Mediterranean, north-eastern Atlantic and the Pacific Ocean.
