TEHRAN, July 29./TASS/. The General Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces and
the Russian Defense Ministry have signed a memorandum of understanding with
an aim to expend bilateral ties, Iranís Mehr news agency quoted Iranian Navy
Commander Hossein Khanzadi as saying on Monday.

The top military said the document had been signed during his trip to
Russia. "This is the first memorandum of understanding of this kind, and it
may be considered as a turning point in relations of Tehran in Moscow along
the defense trajectory," Khanzadi said.

Russia and Iran may shortly hold a joint naval exercise in the area of the
Strait of Hormuz, the Iranian navy commander told IRNA news agency earlier
on Monday.

"A joint Russian-Iranian exercise is expected to be held shortly in the
Indian Ocean. The exercise may also be held in the northern part of the
Indian Ocean, including in the Strait of Hormuz," the naval commander said.

He also said Russia and Iran were engaged in negotiations on strengthening
defense cooperation in the Caspian Sea.

Navy Commander Hossein Khanzadi arrived in St. Petersburg late on July 27
for a three-day visit to attend festivities marking Russiaís Navy Day and
discuss the development of maritime cooperation with Russian partners.
