Iran President Starts Three-Day Visit to India for Key Talks

The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) on Wednesday said, "During the forthcoming visit of President of Iran, both sides would review the progress achieved in bilateral relations and also exchange views on regional and global issues of mutual interest".

The president maintained that one of the key objectives of his India visit is the Chabahar agreement, which has been described as a game changer for regional connectivity, creating a regional trade, investment and transportation hub with links from the Indian Ocean to Central Asia.

As per a statement from MEA (Ministry of External Affairs), during the visit, India and Iran would review the progress achieved in the bilateral relations and also exchange views on regional and global issues of mutual interest.

Rouhani will arrive at Hyderabad's Begumpet Airport and will visit Salar Jung Museum, Golconda Fort, and Qutub Shahi Tomb and offer prayers at the Makkah Masjid. He will leave for New Delhi on Friday, the people with the knowledge of the matter added.

"Iranian President Hassan Rouhani will travel to India on February 15", the Iranian Students' News Agency (ISNA) said.




Telangana Chief Secretary Shailendra Kumar Joshi, who held a coordination meeting yesterday at the state secretariat, directed officials of different departments to make foolproof arrangements for Rouhani's visit.

He will also interact with the Iranians settled in Hyderabad, the source said.

Based on the agreement India has pledged to invest $85 million in equipment of Chabahar port which opens up the transit route for the country to Iran and Afghanistan, bypassing Pakistan.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani will be seeking billions of dollars of Indian investment during a visit to New Delhi, diplomats said, a trip that comes amid U.S. pressure to review a 2015 global nuclear deal and re-impose sanctions on Iran.
