India's navy is training Iranian sailors as part of a military program for around 500 foreign officers, a news report said Wednesday.

The Indian navy has allotted five vacancies to Iranian officers for training at its facilities, the local newspaper Hindustan Times reported.

It quoted Defense Minister A K Antony as telling the parliament last week that 496 personnel from 25 navies, including that of Iran, were undergoing training in India.

They were being trained as part of a one-year program in gunnery, missile operations, anti-submarine warfare and navigation, the report quoted sources as saying.
