Iranian President Hassan Rouhani presented an agreement bill on the establishment of Iran-India-Afghanistan international transportation corridor to the parliament.

The bill on agreement for establishment of international transport and transit corridor among Iran, India and Afghanistan (also known as Chabahar agreement) was submitted for procedures this week.

The agreement that includes an introduction and 15 articles was presented by Ministry of Roads and Urban Development, had been approved during a cabinet meeting back in October last year and it was submitted to the parliament in the form of a bill for passing legal procedures.

The preface of the bill expresses the willingness of the governments of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Islamic Republic of Afghanistan and the Republic of India to develop and improve their capabilities for facilitation of transport and transit of goods and passengers, given the importance of Chabahar Port as the focus of development in transport and transit cooperation between the three countries with the aim of taking advantage of railway, road, air and customs facilities of the mentioned southern Iranian port.

Several foreign countries are willing to make huge investments in economic and infrastructure projects of Chabahar Port following the July 14 agreement between Tehran and six world powers but Iran is scrutinizing the offers to select the most qualified ones as its future partners.
