Omani official hails Chabahar port's capacities for investment
EghtesadOnline: Oman's Deputy Industry and Trade Minister Ahmad Aka'ak said that Chabahar port in Iran and Salaleh port in Oman play a determining role for the regional countries, Central Asian states and those countries which have no way to the sea.
'Chabahar airport has a capacity like an ocean for investment,' Aka'ak said in a meeting with Iran's provincial officials in Sistan and Baluchestan province in Southeastern Iran on Saturday.
'Relations with Chabahar can play an important role for the two countries' governments, businessmen and investors,' he added.
In May, Tehran, New Delhi and Afghanistan signed an epoch-making agreement in Tehran to establish a transit and transportation corridor, according to IRNA.
The agreement known as Chabahar Trilateral Agreement was signed by the three countries' officials in the presence of President Hassan Rouhani, his Afghan counterpart Mohammad Ashraf Ghani and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Tehran.
The trilateral Chabahar agreement will considerably increase making use of Chabahar port that will connect India to Central Asia through Afghanistan and instead will provide Afghanistan's access to India via sea.
