All You Need To Know About 1st-phase Of Chabahar Port

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani inaugurated the strategic Chabahar Port on the Gulf of Oman

The Chabahar port is being seen as an important corridor for India to enter into the Afghanistan and Central Asian markets.

Iranian president Hassan Rouhani inaugurated a $1bn extension of its southeastern Chabahar port which Tehran hopes will help the country become a key transit route to land-locked Afghanistan and Central Asia. By implementing this project, the Chabahar port connects to the country's rail network, and it is possible to connect the railways of the eastern corridor to the Sarakhs border and to access Central Asian countries to free waters through Iran's soil.

(Dunya News)- Iran's Chabahar port lacks potential to progress in absence of technical and economic succour from its "sister Gwadar port" and the former can not culminate to the level of the latter without shared interests. They would also like to use this port to cross their goods.

With Chabahar port being developed and operated by India, it could be used as a point from where humanitarian operations could be coordinated, should the need arise. New Delhi views the Chabahar port project as a strategic response to China's development of the Gwadar port in Pakistan, and its aggressive pursuit of the Belt and Road Initiative. It is only by respecting the sovereignty of countries involved can any regional connectivity corridor fulfil its promise.

The project, work on which started in 2007 at an estimated cost of United States dollars 1 billion, has had India's backing from as far back as 2003; but after Modi initiated trade talks with Iran, the U.S. had questioned India of risking violations of worldwide sanctions. United States sanctions on Iran during the Presidency of George Bush slowed down progress. On a deal between Iran and six major world powers restricting Tehran's nuclear programme in exchange for lifting sanctions, Trump had commented that it was "the worst deal ever negotiated".

In the general policies of the Sixth Development Plan of the country, special attention has been paid to the development of the Makran coastlines, and all the organizations and ministries of the country are required to cooperate to this end in the Sixth Development Plan of the country.

India has already sent its first shipment to Afghanistan via Chabahar. Pakistan's strategic hold over Afghanistan will consequently be diminished. That may hurt the Chabahar project.
