US Says It Will Closely Examine Chabahar Port Deal

Published on 25 May, 2016 at 3:47 pm By

After the Prime Minister Narendra Modi signed Chabahar Port Deal, US said that it would closely examine the project.

“We have been very clear with the Indians (about) continuing restrictions on activities with respect to Iran. We have to examine the details of the Chabahar announcement to see where it falls in that place,” said Nisha Desai Biswal, Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asian Affairs.

Biswal added that US recognised India’s need for a trade route that it doesn’t have. She said:

“India’s relationship with Iran was primarily focused on economic and energy issues. From the Indian perspective, Iran represents for India a gateway into Afghanistan and Central Asia.”

Narendra Modi agreed to invest more than Rs.1 lakh crore in the construction of Chabahar port and development of industries there.

The port, once completed, will help India reach the markets of Afghanistan by bypassing Pakistan. Currently, India’s trade route with Afghanistan passes cuts through Pakistan.
