Iran launches commercial port in Oman Sea (xinhuanet)

Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani on Sunday opened the first phase of Shahid Beheshti Port in the southeastern city of Chabahar, official IRNA news agency reported.

The project was officially opened in a ceremony attended by 60 foreign guests from 17 countries at the port located by the Sea of Oman.

The port is the only oceanic port of Iran which will link Sistan and Balouchestan province to Central Asia and Afghanistan, Rouhani said.

“We are happy that the first wheat shipment for Afghanistan has been sent to the country’s people via the Iranian port,” he said.
