India has been developing a part of the port on Iran’s south-eastern coast along the Gulf of Oman as a way to transport goods to Iran, but also Afghanistan and central Asian countries, and avoiding rival Pakistan.
“About 35 foreign countries were invited to attend the conference, and on that day, the benefits, capacities and potential of the port of Chabahar will be announced,” said Hasanzadeh.
The operational control of Iran’s Shahid Beheshti port, as part of the strategic Chabahar port, has been officially leased to Indian Ports Global Ltd. (IPGL) for a temporary period of 18 months, and a 10-year period afterwards, Trend reports via Mehr News Agency.
„The terrorists tried to enter Chabahar police headquarters but they were prevented by the guards and they detonated the car bomb,“ Marashi added.
With the expansion of Iran’s Chabahar Port, it will be able to accept big ships and its capacity will increase from 2 million tons to 4 million tons per year, Managing Director of Iran’s Ports and Maritime Organization (PMO) Mohammad Rastad said.
