Iran has termed reports that India was ousted from the Chabahar railway project. Iran says some forces are spreading such reports to create distances between the two countries. But those powers won’t succeed in their intentions.
Iran’s Ministry of Road And Railways on Monday invited Indian Ambassador Gaddafa Dharmendra, who was stationed there, for talks. Deputy Minister of the Ministry Saeed Rasoli held a meeting with the Indian Ambassador to discuss ways to enhance cooperation in Chabahar port and Chabahar-Jahedan railway project.
Saeed Rasoli said there is no truth in the reports of India being excluded from the Chabahar-Jahedan rail project. Some outside powers are trying to increase the distance in both countries by spreading such erroneous reports. But they won’t be able to succeed.
Last week, a report was filed claiming that the Iranian government led by Hasan Rohani had separated India from the construction of the Chabahar-Jahedan railway project. Since the report came out, concerns were raised by several sections in India on the issue. However, nothing was officially spoken on this issue by India or Iran. Now, Iran took the initiative of dialogue to address mutual misunderstandings on this issue. India has entered into an agreement with Iran to build a railway line to connect Chabahar port to The City of Jahedan. India wants to reach out to countries in Afghanistan and Central Asia through this rail-port project.
