Hossein Khanzadi (Persian: حسین خانزادی‎) is an Iranian regular military (Artesh) officer who currently serves as the commander of its maritime branch, replacing Habibollah Sayyari in November 2017.[3] On December 30, 2019, Khandazi acknowledged in a televised interview the semi-official Mehr News Agency that the Iranian Navy was now dependent on annual joint exercises with Russia and China.[4][5] He also stated that invitations were made for other countries to participate in the joint exercises and that they were unsuccessful, describing them as "pointless" and a waste of resources.[4]
