YEREVAN, MAY 17, ARMENPRESS. Regarding the use of Chabahar port, India is awaiting details from the Armenian side and will certainly consider them as soon as clear proposals are received from Armenia.

Nilakshi Saha Sinha, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of India to Armenia, said this in an interview with ‘Armenpress’, noting that Armenian Minister of Territorial Administration and Infrastructure Gnel Sanosyan visited Chabahar port in December 2023 regarding the issue of the use of the port.

The Indian ambassador drew attention to the fact that Chabahar port is being jointly developed by India and Iran. “We are waiting for the details from the Armenian side, and we will certainly take them into account if we receive clear proposals from the Armenian side,” the ambassador emphasized, noting that during the talks between the two countries, Armenian representatives showed interest in use of Chabahar port.

Referring to Yerevan’s possible role in developing the communications route from India to Chabahar port and then to the Black Sea, Ambassador Nilakshi Saha Sinha noted that Armenia, as a landlocked country, definitely needs more communications projects.

“If it comes true, I think it will help Armenia overcome the fact that it is a landlocked country,” the ambassador concluded.

The ambassador’s full interview will be published on May 20.
