Gwadar-Chahbhar Port ferry service soon, NA body told

Islamabad—The National Assembly Standing Committee on Ports and Shipping met here Monday with Syed Ghulam Mustafa Shah, MNA, in chair. The Secretary of Ports and Shipping ministry and Chairman of Pakistan National Shipping Corporation (PNSC) briefed the committee that very soon ferry service between Gawadar Port of Pakistan and Chahbhar Port of Iran will commence. He said the service will not only cater to zaireean going to Iran, but it will also prove to be a big boost to the economic relations between two brotherly countries.
In this regard, advertisement for purchase of ferries has also been given in daily newspapers. Recently, a Pakistani delegation went to Iran to sort out the issues related to this project.
Both sides agreed to make every effort to establish the passenger lines by the private/public sector of the two countries and by improving port facility for handling ferries and passengers. —INP
