TEHRAN : Indian Union Minister of Ports, Shipping and Waterways, Minister of AYUSH Shri Sarbananda Sonowal said at Tehran that he is delighted to be part of the signing of the Long Term Bilateral Contract on Chabahar Port Operations in presence of HE Mehrdad Bazrpash, Minister of Roads & Urban Development, Iran. 

India will develop and operate Iran’s strategic Chabahar Port for 10 years, marking a historic moment in India and Iran ties and regional connectivity. Led by relentless effort of Hon’ble PM Shri Narendra Modiji, the agreement not only strengthens links between two great nations but also places India’s firm footstep in the global supply chain and maritime sector.  This is a realisation of Modi Ji’s vision of enhancing global trade by providing an alternate trade route to India for Iran, Afghanistan, Eurasia and Central Asian Republics. India’s operation of Chabahar Port will also be significant in providing humanitarian aid, opening new vistas in fostering peace and stability in the region.

The Chabahar Port located on Iran’s south-western coast has easy access to India’s west coast. It also forms a crucial link in the International North-South Transport Corridor. The long-term contract will give a significant boost to economic activities and establish our growing role in developing global trade & commerce.
