From Persian Gulf nation The President of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Hassan Rouhani will pay a state visit to India at the invitation of the Prime Minister Narendra Modi from February 15 to 17, the press release from the website of Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) said on Wednesday.

This "can be very effective for bilateral trade in the region and mutual access of Afghanistan to regional and global markets", it said.

India is trying to develop the port of Chabahar on Iran's east coast as a way to gain access the markets of central Asia as well as Afghanistan by by-passing arch-rival Pakistan.

In November past year, India had sent its first consignment of wheat to Afghanistan by sea through the Chabahar port in Iran, which was seen as a "landmark" move to operationalise a new strategic transit route among the three countries bypassing Pakistan.

The Trilateral Transit Agreement (Chabahar Agreement) was also signed by transport ministers of India, Iran and Afghanistan in the presence of Modi, Rouhani and Afghan President Ashraf Ghani. India imported USA $10.5 billion worth of goods mainly crude oil and exported commodities worth United States $2.4 billion.

Israeli police push Netanyahu bribery indictment; he decries 'slander'
For months, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made it his mantra that "there will be nothing, because there is nothing". Netanyahu began in the early 2000s even when Netanyahu did not hold a government position".

Rouhani is slated to arrive at Begumpet Airport in Hyderabad at around 4 PM. That visit was considered to be another chance to craft a strategic relationship with Iran and to enhance its influence in West Asia.

This is the second time Rouhani will be visiting Hyderabad, and it is his first visit after assuming charge as the president.

Rouhani said that the Islamic Revolution was aimed at gaining independence, forging national sovereignty, achieving freedom, spreading Islamic and national culture, republicanism, and Islamism. He had also emphasised that the project was specifically important, given that it connects the trade corridors that pass through Iran to the sea route.

Rouhani is also likely to address a meeting of Iranians settled in Hyderabad.
