India has reaffirmed its strong commitment to work together with all regional stakeholders to enhance connectivity in the region and to provide unhindered access to the sea to Afghanistan and Central Asian countries through the Chabahar Port.
“The Chabahar Port has not only emerged as a commercial transit hub for the region but also facilitated the delivery of humanitarian assistance, especially during the pandemic. The port is part of our shared commitment towards peace, stability and prosperity of the people of Afghanistan,” external affairs Minister S Jaishankar said.
He was addressing the ‘Chabahar Day’ celebration yesterday hosted by India on the margins of the ‘Maritime India Summit’ to showcase the business potential of the strategic port located in Iran.
Senior ministers from Afghanistan, Iran, Kazakhstan, Russia and Uzbekistan virtually participated in it.
