Modi administration wants to speed up Chabahar development

Mumbai: The Narendra Modi government has decided to get moving on the long-delayed construction of strategically critical Chabahar port in Iran that would give India easier access to Afghanistan and Central Asia through a shorter route that would also mean being able to avoid Karachi in neighbouring Pakistan. 
Chabahar will not only provide India a shorter trade route to Afghanistan, it can also use this to import minerals from Central Asia.  [23/06/14]
