Chabahar Port is a seaport in Chahbahar in southeastern Iran. Its location lies in the Gulf of Oman. It is the only Iranian port with direct access to the ocean. The port was partially built by India in the 1990s to provide access to Afghanistan and Central Asia, bypassing Pakistan under the Ashgabat agreement. In May 2016, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his counterpart, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, signed a series of twelve agreements in Tehran, in which India offered to develop the Port of Chabahar, in order to allow Indian goods to be exported to Iran, with the possibility of onward connections to Afghanistan and Central Asia.
