Iran News - - DOMESTIC -

CHABA­HAR (IRNA) - More than 30m Eu­ros has been in­vested in Chaba­har, Sis­tan-Baluches­tan Province, south­east­ern Iran, in lo­gis­tics since the be­gin­ning of the Ira­nian year (March 21), said the di­rec­tor gen­eral of province’s Ports and Mar­itime Or­ga­ni­za­tion and on Satur­day.

‘Chaba­har Port has an im­por­tant role in re­gional and in­ter­na­tional tran­si­tions,’ said Behrouz Aqaee.

Aqaee added, ‘Chaba­har is an im­por­tant and cheap way for land­locked coun­tries, like Afghanistan, to get con­nected to open wa­ters.’

The fact that Iran has in­vested over one bil­lion dol­lars in the first phase of Sha­heed Be­heshti Port in Chaba­har to con­struct the in­fra­struc­tures shows how im­por­tant the port is, Aqaee said.

He said that tran­sit­ing 110,000 tons of wheat and grains to Afghanistan was an in­stance to show the im­por­tance of sea trans­porta­tion, adding that in the five months, Chaba­har has tran­sited goods six time what it had tran­sited in the past five years.

Say­ing that Chaba­har is known as the Gate­way of Na­tions, he added be­ing ex­empted from US sanc­tions, it will be in­ter­na­tion­ally pro­moted.
