Iran to build road network in India

Iran has stepped in to build a road network in India that will shorten the distance between Kabul and the Iranian port of Chahbahar by at least 800 km, reported Tehran Times. An Iranian company, Technic, has won a contract valued at $1.36m for constructing roads as part of a network that will link India's northeast to the northwest and the southeast to the southwest in the broad shape of a square. The Iranian mission confirmed the contract, which requires Iran to complete the project in 30 months.
