    PKKH Exclusive | by Shaikh Fahad
    Afghan officials from Ministry of Chamber & Commerce speaking on condition of anonymity have said that Afghanistan will be allowed to use Irans Chabahar port for shipments and trade after the two countries signed an agreement in Kabul last Wednesday. It has also been learned that the Chabahar port has been financed by Indian government to maintain Iranian and Indian influence in Afghanistan after US forces leave Afghanistan in 2014. The second purpose, we believe of investment in this port is to counter Gwadar port of Pakistan.
    The agreement was signed by Afghanistans Minister of Commerce and Industries Anwar al Haq Ahady and the Iranian Ambassador to Afghanistan Abolfazl Zohrevand.
    The endorsement of the pact means Afghan traders including those directly working with American contracting companies will be able to use the southeastern port Irans only port with direct access to the sea for importing and exporting goods. The news of signing of this agreement comes as relief to US/NATO official since the closure of NATO supplies from Pakistan has caused massive setback in terms of finance to US/NATO.
    Officials said the Chabahar port will help Afghanistans trade-related transit problems and is likely to boost commercial transactions.
    Ahady said that, according to the agreement, the first step involves building a hub near the port for Afghan traders to have a base for trading from.
    The allocation of land is around 50 hectares and he expects traders would be able to use it within a year, he said.
    Through the efforts of the Afghan and Iranian officials, Chabahar as a transit route for Afghanistan has become a reality, he added.
    A panel of officials from Iran who travelled to Afghanistan for the signing of the agreement said that many countries had applied to Chabahar Port for permission to use it, and Afghanistan with the help of Indian Investment had succeeded.
    Ambassador Zohrevand welcomed the agreement saying it would help the economic expansion of Afghanistan as the port would provide greater access to Afghanistan into world markets.
    The outcome of this agreement is not only positive for Afghanistan and Iran relations, we also expect it to help the joint cooperation of Afghan and Iran traders so they can expand through cooperation to the Middle East and Asia, he said.
    The agreement eases the pressure on the US-backed Afghan Government to rely on trade routes through Pakistan, as relations between the two countries have witnessed significant restrains in recent months.
    It also signals the warming of relations between Iran and Afghanistan. Only last week the pair endorsed an agreement to allow for the transfer of prisoners sentenced in the others country to serve their sentence in their native land.

    if this news is correct than i hope those misguided sunni muslims who still consider iran as their "hero' do wake up?

    without iran,s help america could never have occupied iraq,nor it had succeeded in afghanistan....irani,s consider sunnis theirw orse enemies than jews.
    iran gives money and weapons to pro america north alliance in afghsnitan which has done great atrocities against sunnis there.
    iran shares same interests in muslim world as america and israel.too bad that majority of muslims are too thick to understand this inspite of so many signs and proofs
