Gwadar, Chabahar to be made ‘sister port cities’


QUETTA: Gwadar and Chabahar will be made ‘sister port cities’, and railway track will be laid between them on priority, Balochistan Chief Minister Nawab Sanaullah Zehri said in a meeting with Ali Osat Hashemi, the governor of the Iranian province of Sistan-Baluchestan, on Monday.

“The Chabahar-Gwadar Memorandum of Understanding will be implemented soon,” Zehri said. The plans for a border trade line, a new shipping lane and Iran-Gwadar flights would also be materialised, he added. “We have already formed a joint border monitoring committee in order to prevent human trafficking and drug smuggling.”
