Chabahar Port and Afghanistan have signed a memorandum of understanding on Wednesday to expand cooperation in transportation, transit, investment and logistics.
“Based on the MoU, the Afghan private sector has agreed to boost cargo transit traffic through Chabahar’s Shahid Beheshti Port. Chabahar Port Authority, in turn, has agreed to allocate land for Afghan companies as well as cargo storage, and to grant discounts and facilities based on the generated traffic,” Director General of Sistan-Baluchestan Ports and Maritime Organization Behrouz Aqaei was quoted as saying by the Ministry of Roads and Urban Development’s news portal.
Chabahar is Iran’s only oceanic port town located in Sistan-Baluchestan Province and consists of two separate terminals: Shahid Kalantari and Shahid Beheshti on Iran’s coast along the Sea of Oman.
