The officials representing India and Iran will attempt to resolve contentious issues related to the proposed Chabahar Port in Iran at foreign office consultation.
- The officials attributed the delays to Iran changing terms and conditions for the port, and India seeking a better deal after initially giving in.
- The discussions now centre on resolving conditions that both sides consider each other to be imposing.
- The consultation will also take up the International North South Transport Corridor (INSTC) project linking India with Central Asia and other countries.
- It will also consider regional and international issues such as the rise of the Sunni militant IS and peace talks in Afghanistan.
