Iran, India begin new economic diplomacy

Bandar Abbas, IRNA – The Islamic Republic of Iran and India have started a new economic diplomacy in Iran’s southern province Hormozgan, indicating their capacity to expand ties despite the US unilateral sanctions against Tehran.

India could be considered to have a unique status in Iran’s foreign policy, as their relationship has always been mild, stable, and long-standing.

The two countries have long-lasting historical, lingual, religious, and cultural commonalities and have recently developed, in addition to economic and cultural relations, military ties with Indian fleets being deployed to Hormozgan coasts and Iranian flotillas to the Indian Ocean as well as holding joint marine drills.

Indians had a bold presence in Hormozgan Province in the first half of the 20th century which is manifested in the Hindu Temple constructed in 1921 in Bandar Abbas.

Indian Ambassador to Tehran Gaddam Dharmendra and Indian Embassy’s second secretary, economic attaché, and military attaché took a trip to Hormozgan Province, south Iran on Sunday.

Indian officials had a meeting with Bandar Abbas mayor, paid a visit to Shahid Rajaei Port that is the largest commercial port in Iran, met with a group of economic activists and commerce chamber officials, and finally had a meeting with the governor-general of Hormozgan Province.

The Indian ambassador called Iran a strong partner for India and said that the countries could be strategic partners in the region and international arena.

He also pointed to the capacity of Hormozgan Province and Shahid Rajaei Port in the North-South Corridor and said that India would convey its positive viewpoint on Hormozgan to Iranian foreign minister in his trip to India.

Governor-General of Hormozgan Province Mehdi Dousti said that the province would soon introduce representatives from the government and private sector to form a joint working group with Indian representatives to elevate trade ties with the country.
