NEW DELHI, Aug 14 : Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif yesterday met Prime Minister Narendra Modi who affirmed India's commitment to work with Tehran for development of Chabahar Port that is expected to have far reaching benefit for India, Iran and the entire Central Asian region.
India has pledged to invest about USD 85 million in developing the strategic port, located on Iran's southeastern coast, which would provide India a sea-land access route to Afghanistan bypassing Pakistan. During the meeting, Zarif, the first key minister of Iran to come here after the historic nuclear pact between Tehran with the Western countries in July which will lead to lifting of sanctions, said Iran considered India its "strategic partner".     ?PTI
