Text : India s 10th wheat consignment for Afghanistan arrived in Iran s southeastern Shahid Beheshti Port in Chabahar on Wednesday, with Afghanistan s Ambassador in Tehran Abdul Ghafoor Liwal in attendance. The general cargo ship NEGAR carried a total of 203 containers, including 5,000 tons of wheat and humanitarian aid, from India s Kandla Port to Chabahar to be transported via road to Milak, a border city on the Afghan border, ILNA quoted Behrouz Aqaei, the head of Sistan-Baluchestan s Ports and Maritime Organization, as saying. New Delhi, Tehran and Kabul signed a trilateral deal in 2016 to develop the port of Shahid Beheshti and use it as a hub for the transit of goods from India to landlocked Afghanistan. The first phase of Chabahar s Shahid Beheshti Port was inaugurated by President Hassan Rouhani in December 2017. Chabahar, Iran s sole oceanic port along the southeastern coast of the country, serves as a transit route linking India, Iran and Afghanistan bypassing Pakistan.
