NEW DELHI: India and Iran have signed a significant pact which gives New Delhi operational control of a part of the strategically located Chabahar port on the Gulf of Oman for 18 months.

The agreement was signed after Prime Minister Narendra Modi held wide-ranging talks with Iranian president Hassan Rouhani, focussing on ramping up regional connectivity and intensifying bilateral trade and investment.
