Chabahar connects India with Afghanistan

Iran's strategic port of Chabahar in the south of Sistan and Baluchestan, is one of the most important communication bridges for the transit of goods from India to Afghanistan, says IRNA.

For the first time over the past 40 years, Behshad, a ship with 645 containers weighing 14,700 tons arrived at the port of Chabahar from the port of Kandla.

The arrival of wheat ships from India to Chabahar port lasts about two to two and a half days and after the arrival to Chabahar, and the trucks of wheat were sent through the transit routes of Chabahar, Nikshahr, Iranshahr, Khash, Zahedan and Zabul and Milak border crossing-point to Afghanistan.

Launch of the first phase of Chabahar port development project in the previous year has provided the ground for large vessels up to 100,000 tons, where so far, eight ships carrying a transit wheat load and a ship carrying beans to Afghanistan have docked in this port.

Over last year, nine ships, including eight wheat cargo ships and a ship with 4,825 containers, weighing 110,625 tons from India, entered Chabahar port and then Afghanistan.
