US EXEMPTS IRAN’S CHABAHAR PORT FROM SANCTIONS

Rferl reported on 7th November that the State Department says it is exempting Iran’s big port project in Chabahar from sanctions in recognition of its importance to landlocked Afghanistan.  Iran late last year inaugurated the port on the Indian Ocean, which is being built largely by India and is expected to provide a key supply route for Afghanistan while allowing India to bypass rival Pakistan to trade with Central Asia and Africa.
