KARACHI - Pakistan and Iran have decided to launch a ferry service from Karachi to Iran’s Chabahar.

The statement came during a joint press conference of Minister for Ports and Shipping Hasil Bizenjo and Iran’s Transport Minister Abbas Akhoundi in Karachi on Thursday.

Bizenjo said that best transport facilities would be available to people of both countries after the launch of the ferry service.

Speaking on the occasion, the Iranian minister expressed hope that ferry service would be extended to other areas. “Iran considers Pakistan’s progress its own progress,” he said, adding his country was willing to cooperate for the establishment of road and rail link from Gwadar to Central Asia.
