Iran invites Pakistan, China to join India in Chabahar port project

An Indian vehicle reportedly intercepted a Pakistani diplomat's car in Indian capital New Delhi

These caveats must be deliberated as the $62 billion China-Pakistan Economic Corridor approaches completion, with expansions already being explored such as between Gwadar and Chabahar.

The senior Pakistani diplomat stressed that Iran and Pakistan will always continue to work very closely to make sure that they work for a mutual benefit.

Sources in India also said that on February 16, the Indian High Commissioner met the Foreign Secretary of Pakistan to lodge a strong protest against multiple acts of hooliganism against Indian properties and personnel.

Iran has invited Pakistan and China to participate in the strategic Chabahar Port and said the initiative is not aimed at "strangulating" or "encircling" anybody, a media report, on Tuesday, quoted visiting Iranian foreign minister as saying.

Tehran had also expressed willingness to improve ties with Saudi Arabia when Pakistan's former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif visited Iran during the Yemen crisis, but the Kingdom's response was not warm, according to Mohammad Javad Zarif.

After hearing the rumor, Jhene was reportedly "p***ed and "confronted [Big Sean] about it and he didn't really deny it ". One of its sources said, "They were all over each other and they looked really comfortable around each other".

Sources privy to Pakistan High Commission in India, the issue was raised with Ministry of External Affairs and demanded the government to keep a check on security agencies' authorities.

Yestrday, Zarif had said that Iran has offered China and Pakistan to participate in the Chahbahar seaport project. "Our relations with India, just like Pakistan's relations with Saudi Arabia, are not against Islamabad as we understand Pakistan's relations with Saudi Arabia are not against Iran".

Lodhi also said that the people of Pakistan have great admiration for the people of Iran. These regions need to be linked by sea and land routes, he said.

It is expected to cut transport costs and time for Indian goods by a third and likely to ramp up trade among India, Afghanistan and Iran in the wake of Pakistan denying transit access to New Delhi for trade with the two countries. Iran's handing of the port's operational control to India was disappointing for Pakistan and taking part in Chabahar may engender problems moving forward.
