TEHRAN, December 4, 2017

Iran has opened the first phase of Shahid Beheshti Port in the south-eastern city of Chabahar, a media report said.

Inaugurated by Iran's President Hassan Rouhani , the project opening ceremony by the Oman Sea was attended by 60 foreign guests from 17 countries, reported Irna.

The project, due to its strategic location, linking the region to Central Asia and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), will revive the far southeaster areas of Iran in terms of development and employment.

The general director of Sistan-Baluchestan Ports and Maritime Organization said after the opening ceremony that the port will increase the capacity of loading and unloading the ships, as well as the employment rate in the province.

Chabahar as the only oceanic port of Iran lies on 645 km to the south of Zahedan, the provincial capital city.
