India is keen to rapidly develop Iran’s Chabahar Port, a strategic facility that New Delhi hopes will open up opportunities to Indian companies wanting access to Iran, Central Asia, Russia and other regions beyond. Chabahar sits on the Gulf of Oman near the Iranian border with Pakistan and promises India the possibility of direct sea access from its western coast. India, which imports 80% of its crude oil needs, has a long-standing relationship with Iran, especially in the energy sector. India is the second-biggest buyer of oil from Iran, after China.
