A cargo ship carrying 43 containers, including 942 tons of marble blocks, has been sent to China via the southeastern port of Chabahar for the first time, the head of Sistan-Baluchestan Ports and Maritime Organization said. 
“Stones are expected to become one of the major exports through Chabahar, given the port’s modern loading and unloading equipment and discounts offered on port services. In the past, exports from Chabahar were restricted to one destination, i.e. India, but we managed to tap into the benefits of the country’s only oceanic port and expand Iran and Afghanistan’s export destinations to other countries, including China, Thailand and Malaysia,” Behrouz Aqaie also told IRNA on Thursday.  
The first shipment of Afghanistan’s transit goods has been shipped to China through Shahid Beheshti terminal of Chabahar Port in southern Iran, Mehr News Agency reported last month.
