India would like to see Iranian port of Chabahar join the International North-South Transport Corridor

Mumbai, India (PortSEurope) March 7, 2021 – The Indian government has proposed that the port of Chabahar join the International North-South Transport Corridor (INSTC). Chabahar Port is a seaport in Chabahar located in southeastern Iran, on the Gulf of Oman and is key to India’s connectivity with the west. The International North–South Transport Corridor (INSTC) is a 7,200-km-long multi-mode network of ship, rail, and road
route for moving freight between India, Iran, Afghanistan, Azerbaijan, Russia, Central Asia and Europe. The route primarily involves moving freight from India, Iran, Azerbaijan and Russia via ship, rail and road. Speaking on the sidelines of the international maritime summit, External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar said, “India has also proposed the inclusion of Chabahar in the INSTC route. I am hopeful that during the INSTC Coordination Council meeting, member states would agree to the expansion of the INSTC route to include the Chabahar Port and also agree on expanding the membership of this project”.
