Iran willing to meet Afghanistan’s demand for fuel

Iran willing to meet Afghanistan’s demand for fuel

Feb 22, 2016 - 10:20

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Tehran is ready to meet Afghanistaninfo-icon’s demand for fuel through the construction of a terminal and a warehouse, an Iranian official has said.

Ali Osat Hashemi, governor general for Sistan-Balochistan province, was quoted as saying by a news agency that Iran would transport fuel to the energy-deficient neighbour through pipelines.

Given its capacity for loading and unloading transit commodities, the Chabahar Port could emerge as a commercial hub for Afghan and Iranian traders, he believed.

Hashemi made the remarks at a recent a meeting with visiting Afghan Consul-General Abdul Rahim Nikpour in the capital of Zahedan province, according to IRNA. 

More than 100 Afghan merchants and companies are active in Chabahar, showing the commercial opportunities offered by the port located near the Gulf of Oman.
