Iran and Pakistan on Saturday agreed to enhance sea trade through better connectivity between the strategic Pakistani Gwadar port and the Iranian port of Chabahar, which is being developed with India ' s financial assistance. The possibility of better connectivity between Gwadar and Chabahar was explored during the talks between Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani who visited Islamabad on his two-day visit. Significantly, last month the Indian government cleared proposals for the development of the strategic Chabahar port. The Chabahar port would give India a sea-land access route to Afghanistan bypassing Pakistan. The agreement on India's assistance for the port's development was signed last year. Iran and Pakistan also vowed to enhance bilateral ties, including in the energy sector and open two more border crossings to boost trade. President Rouhani said, before leaving Islamabad, that the two leaders took stock of the existing state of relations and how to enhance economic interaction. He said they talked about issues relating to energy, gas and export of electricity. Rouhani said they also discussed ways and means to increase bilateral trade. He said there were vast opportunities to increase economic cooperation. President Rouhani left Islamabad for Tehran on Saturday afternoon after a two-day visit during which the two countries signed 6 agreements to expand cooperation in health, commerce, finance, and foreign services.
