ST. PETERSBURG, August 13. /TASS/. Russian sailors will participate in at least two international naval drills in the Caspian Sea, Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Navy Admiral Viktor Chirkov told journalists on Thursday.
"At least two international navy drills are planned in the Caspian Sea until the end of 2015. The first drills will involve three countries - Russia, Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan. The second will include two sides - the Caspian Flotilla of the Russian Navy and Azerbaijan’s Navy," Chirkov said.
Drills will focus on training cooperation "with the aim of strengthening stability and eliminating any security threats in the Caspian Sea," Admiral Chirkov noted.
He reminded that contacts are consistently maintained between the fleets of Caspian countries. "For instance, three Russian warships have entered Azerbaijan earlier today. These are two small artillery ships ‘Makhachkala’ and ‘Volgodonsk’ and the hydrographic vessel ‘Anatoly Guzhvin’," Chirkov said.
