India, Iran reaffirm cooperation on Chabahar port

India and Iran on Thursday reaffirmed their commitment to continue their cooperation on the development of the Chabahar port as a transit hub for the region including Central Asia and said delegates from the two counties will meet soon to address operational aspects of the key port.

This commitment to continuing cooperation on the Chabahar port was made during Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian's visit to India. This is the first visit of Amir-Abdollahian who arrived in New Delhi on Wednesday, since he assumed office in August 2021, business-standard.com reported.

During his visit, the Iranian foreign minister called on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and also held a meeting with the National Security Advisor, Ajit Kumar Doval.

According to the minister of foreign affairs, India and Iran share close historical and civilizational ties. "Our bilateral relations are marked by strong linkages across institutions, culture and people to people ties," the Indian Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement.

"Both sides acknowledged the significance of bilateral cooperation in the field of regional connectivity and reviewed the progress made at the Shahid Beheshti terminal, Chabahar port. The sides agreed that the Chabahar port has provided much needed sea-access to landlocked Afghanistan and has also emerged as a commercial transit hub for the region, including for Central Asia," the foreign minister said.
