TEHRAN, May 12 (Xinhua) -- Iran wrapped up its eight-day navy drill in its southern waters on Wednesday, calling the drill " successful."

According to official IRNA news agency, the drill came to an end after eight days of massive exercise with the parade of Army Naval forces including Iranian warships and hovercraft, heavy and light submarines as well as Iranian Air Force warplanes and helicopters.

Spokesman of Iran's navy drill Gasem Rostamabadi said the country's naval force carried out the exercises and operations of its eight-day war game "successfully."

"Over 150 exercises and operations by Iran's ground, air and naval forces were carried out successfully in the massive navy drill," Rostamabadi was quoted by IRNA as saying.

"All the exercises were successful," he said, adding that "This war game can be regarded as a turning point in using domestic achievements including lightweight submarines, destroyer, radar systems and electronic war systems."
