Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on Monday invited Pakistan to participate in Chabahar's seaport project and development of its link with Gwadar Port, as he sought to allay concerns in Pakistan over Indian involvement in the Iranian port.
“We offered to participate in the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor. We have also offered Pakistan and China to participate in Chabahar,” Zarif, who is on a three-day visit to Pakistan, was quoted as saying by the Pakistani newspaper Dawn.
Zarif was delivering a lecture at the Institute of Strategic Studies in Islamabad to mark the 70th anniversary of the establishment of Pakistan-Iran diplomatic relations.
The Iranian foreign minister earlier held bilateral talks with his Pakistani counterpart Khawaja Asif at the Foreign Office and addressed a trade conference. The visiting foreign minister is being accompanied by a large trade delegation from Iran.
