This railway project is between Iranian Railways and Indian Railways Construction Ltd (IRCON) to build a railway line from Chabahar port to Zahedan. This project is part of India’s commitment to the trilateral agreement between India, Iran, and Afghanistan to construct an alternative trade route to Afghanistan and Central Asia. More about Chabahar Project: The Port of Chabahar is situated in the Gulf of Oman. It is Iran’s sole oceanic terminal. This project provides India with an alternate route to Afghanistan, bypassing Pakistan. This project has the potential to provide an Indian strategic counterpoint to the Gwadar port in Pakistan that China is building right next door to Chabahar. Iran is removing India from the Chabahar rail project, citing delays in funding and launching the project from the Indian side. China completes a huge 25-year, $400 billion strategic partnership agreement with Iran that could cloud the plans of India. By March 2022, the whole project will be completed. 1 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login or register to add a new answer.
