India has supplied the second shipment of equipment to Chabahar port in Iran, Union Minister Mansukh Mandaviya said on Monday.
“Continuing with our commitment to developing Chabahar Port, the second shipment of equipment reaches Shahid Behesti Terminal,” Port Shipping and Waterways Minister Mansukh Mandaviya said in a tweet. In January, India had supplied a consignment of two mobile harbour cranes to the Chabahar port, having a total contract value of over USD 25 million.
Last month, Ports, Waterways, and Shipping (MoPWS) Additional Secretary Sanjay Bandopadhyaya told that two more cranes are standing for loading near the port near Venice, which will reach by March-end to the Chabahar port and two more cranes will be supplied to the port by June-end.
The Chabahar port is situated in the Sistan-Balochistan province on the energy-rich southern coast of Iran. The port is being developed by India, Iran, and Afghanistan to boost trade ties.
