Iran, India and Afghanistan to Sign Sea Trade Pact

from A pact that would connect India to Afghanistan through a southern Iranian port is set to be signed by the three countries, Afghan and Indian officials said. The draft pact centers on Chabahar Port, which would allow India and Afghanistan to conduct trade and access Central Asia’s vast energy resources, has been reviewed and approved by Afghanistan and is now awaiting Indian approval, FreshPlaza reported. India considers the pact pivotal, as analysts believe the sea route is the only viable alternative to land trade given the instability of Afghanistan and the reluctance of Pakistan to grant land access to India, which has no direct land connection to Central Asia.
