Iran President Starts Three-Day Visit to India for Key Talks

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani will arrive in Hyderabad on Thursday evening as part of his three-day India visit during which the two countries will discuss regional and global issues of mutual interest. "He will land in Hyderabad on Thursday evening".

Before leaving for New Delhi on February 16, Dr Rouhani will address the Muslim congregation at Makkah Masjid, after performing the Friday prayers at the historic mosque.

"There are a number of projects for expansion of ties in the pipeline that not only will be in the interests of both nations but also in the interest of the region", Iran's ambassador to India, Gholamreza Ansari, was quoted as saying by Reuters in a recent speech.

This is the second time that the Rouhani will be visiting Hyderabad, and the first visit after assuming charge as the President in 2013.

He will have meetings with the President Ramnath Kovind and Prime Minster Modi, according to a release by the Ministry of External Affairs here on Wednesday. The Iranian President will hold delegation-level talks with PM Modi in New Delhi subsequently on Saturday.

India and Iran will be hoping to iron out several issues particularly the slow progress on the Chabahar Port which Iran feels has got stuck due to United States pressure on countries and the latest set of sanctions on Iran.

He is also scheduled to visit the Salar Jung Museum tomorrow.

The first phase of the port was inaugurated by President Rouhani in December past year, a little over a month after the first consignment of wheat from India to Afghanistan was sent via this facility. India, Afghanistan and Iran have been engaged in trilateral cooperation on Chabahar which will lead to establishment of an "International Transport and Transit corridor between India, Afghanistan and Iran".
