He said that since the Iranian and Indian ports agreed to offer a 40% discount to port costs last year, the two countries have witnessed an incredible rise of bilateral exchanges so that Iran’s exports to India have excessively increased over the past six months.
India’s 75,000 tons of donated wheat to India were sent to Afghanistan via Iran’s Shahid Rajaei Port last year, the official said. ■
