Governor of Sistan and Baluchistan Province Ahmad Ali Mukhebati in an online meeting with Iran's Ambassador to Turkmenistan Gholam Abbas Arbab Khales spoke about the economic benefits of Chabahar port.
Mr. Ahmad Ali Muhebati noted that the port connects the Central Asian countries with the open sea, which expands opportunities for trade activities. He also stressed the readiness of the authorities to support investors wishing to develop projects in Sistan and Baluchistan. In this regard, Muhebati urged Turkmen partners to join these initiatives.
Arbab Khales expressed his willingness to participate in the organization of the visit of Turkmen representatives to Chabahar to get acquainted with its capacities. For example, the annual capacity of Shahid Beheshti port (one of the 2 ports of Chabahar) is about 8.5 million tons.
The development of Chabahar port is supported by the Supreme Leader of Iran, Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei and President Hassan Rouhani. Given its favorable geographical location, the Iranian port occupies a leading position not only at the national but also at the international level.
