BAZAR: Consequences Of US Sanctions On Iran Discussed
Officials from the Afghan-American Chamber of Commerce (AACC) have stressed the need for expansion of trade and transit relations between Afghanistan and India, saying it will help in economic growth of both nations.
According to investors and economic analysts, Afghanistan and India can boost trade and transit ties easily through Chabahar port, but the new US sanctions on Iran have changed the situation and now fewer investors are interested to invest in the port or use it for trade and transit purposes.
In an interview with TOLOnews, Jeffery Grieco, CEO of the AACC, said Chabahar port can play a vital for in expansion of Kabul-New Delhi trade and transit ties, but the new sanctions by the United States on Iran, which will affect trade and transit at the port, is a political issue.
He said the US sanctions on Tehran is something that Washington decides about and that AACC cannot do anything in this regard.
