India, Afghanistan, Iran to hold trilateral meet on transport agreement

New Delhi, March 10 (IANS) India, Afghanistan and Iran will hold a trilateral meeting next month to finalise an agreement on transport and transit between the three countries, a senior government official said on Thursday.

“We have been discussing for the past few months a trilateral transport and transit agreement between India, Iran and Afghanistan utilising the Chabahar port (in Iran) and the onward connection to west and southwest Afghanistan through Zahedan,” external affairs ministry spokesman Vikas Swarup said at a media briefing here.

“The first meeting of the expert group was held in Tehran last year. Only a few points of the draft are left to be finalised,” he said.

In the second meeting in India, sometime in April, the remaining points are expected to be tied up, Swarup added.
