On 22 May 2016, Modi paid an official visit to Iran. Our and your artists, engineers, mathematicians and litterateurs ensured that our relations, which goes back in history are kept intact, which will strengthen our friendship and relationship in the future.

Dr.Rouhani said the Chabahar seaport would benefit Afghanistan and Central Asia.

Trade, investment and regional connectivity between India and Iran received a boost on Saturday with the two countries signing a dozen pacts including one on double taxation avoidance and another for the leasing by an Indian company of a container terminal facility in Iran's strategically located Chabahar port.

Enhancement of ties between the two great and influential Asian countries will serve the interests of their nations and the region, the president added, calling for closer cooperation with India in the energy industry, mining sector, transportation and the new technologies.

India shipped its first consignment of wheat to Afghanistan by sea through Chabahar last October. "We have decided today to reopen and re-engage on all three issues again". We will get benefit if we buy from Iran. "For the longest of time, India and Iran have been learning from each other", Modi said.

President Hassan Rouhani of Iran and Prime Minister Narendra Modi of India have expressed readiness to expand relations between their countries in all areas. They also deliberated on regional situations in their wide-ranging talks.


International North- South Transport Corridor (INSTC) was also discussed and both sides stressed on the need for inclusion of Chabahar within its framework.

On Friday, President Rouhani had visited the QutbShahi tombs in the Golconda area of Hyderabad. "I again appreciate you and your government". India committed up to $500 million for the development of Chabahar along with associated roads and rail lines.

President of Iran reciprocated the sentiments in his statement and informed that both countries shared views on two crucial issues, namely transit and economy at the delegation-level talks held earlier in the day. We have had positive talks for better banking relations as well. "It is a historical relationship, it is a relationship based on civilisational heritage", he said. "All military centres were in total control of the US", Rouhani said.

Rouhani pointed to mutual investment in the southern Iranian port city of Chabahar by Iran and India as well as Afghanistan as a means of turning it into a trade hub.

The trio: President Ram Nath Kovind and Prime Minister Narendra Modi welcome Iranian President Hassan Rouhani during his ceremonial reception at Rashtrapati Bhavan on Saturday. However, tensions arose as a result of Iraq declaring an imposed 8-year war on Iran and the fact that India had very close relations with the dictatorial regime of Saddam Hussein in Iraq and Iraqi MiG pilots were trained in India in the 80s. India imported $10.5 billion worth of goods, mainly crude oil, and exported commodities worth $2.4 billion.
