What did America say on the deal between India and Iran regarding Chabahar Port?

America has said that there is a potential danger of sanctions being imposed on any country doing business deals with Iran. He also said that he knows that Iran and India have signed an agreement related to Chabahar port. India on Monday (May 13) signed a 10-year contract to operate Iran’s strategically important Chabahar port, which will help New Delhi increase trade with Central Asia.

In 2003, India had proposed to develop Chabahar port located in Sistan-Baluchistan province of energy-rich Iran. Through this, goods can be sent from India to Afghanistan and Central Asia using the International North-South Transport Corridor (INSTC). America had imposed sanctions on Iran over its suspected nuclear program, due to which the development of the port had slowed down.

“We are aware of reports that Iran and India have signed an agreement related to Chabahar port,” Foreign Ministry deputy spokesperson Vedant Patel said in the daily press conference.

On a question about India’s agreement with Iran on the strategically important Chabahar port, he said, ‘I would just like to say that since it concerns the US, US sanctions are in place on Iran and we will maintain them.’ Vedant Patel said, ‘You have heard us say in many cases that any entity, any person who is considering a business deal with Iran, they should be aware of the potential risks and sanctions.’
