Narendra Modi and Shinzo Abe on the Matter
Both the representatives of India and Japan discussed it last year to promote peace and prosperity around the globe through some works, especially in South Asia. Japan’s cooperation and its stand is important for India as it will help and ensure the time bound completion of its commitment to the development the Iranian Port.
A Counter Part from India To China
The economic corridor that is being built nearly about 75 km away from Pakistan known as China’s Gwadar port, is a part of the Pakistan Economic corridor Gwadar and it is a rapid developing project. The worth is around $46 million. India’s main concern point is Beijing getting the operational control of the port that is being located in Pakistan’s south western part known as Balochistan.
India’s take on the Project
India believes that a multi- cornered cooperation in terms of connectivity will surely provide Afghanistan an access to the markets and their contributions towards the development will definitely be increased through this. India’s vision is to build 2 terminals at Chabahar port abiding by the specifications signed by the Inter- Government Mou that is being signed with Iran. This port will also provide India an alternative access route in Afghanistan.
