Foreign Ministers Of India And Iran Discuss Chabahar, Afghanistan

India’s External Affairs Minister S. Jaishankar made a stopover in Tehran to meet his Iranian counterpart Javad Zarif on Tuesday.

Jaishankar tweeted after the meeting that he and Zarif had “discussed strengthening our bilateral cooperation and reviewed regional developments.”

It was reported that the topics discussed included the Chabahar port project and the emerging situation in Afghanistan.

The strategic meeting, which followed the meeting of the two defence ministers on Sunday, is being seen as India’s attempts to stay involved in the Chabahar project as China and Iran are on the verge of signing an economic and strategic agreement worth $400 billion.
