Former Union Minister Manish Tewari has said that Gwadar port and Chabahar port could not be compared.
Points of Differences:
- The development of the Chabahar port in Iran is a commercial enterprise,
- On the other hand, development of the Gwadar port in Pakistan by China is a strategic-military enterprise with long-term implications on the region
- Gwadar Port in the Baluchistan province is being built by China under a multi-billion economic corridor.
- The Chabahar port in Iran is being considered by India, Iran and Afghanistan as a gateway to major opportunities for trade with central Asian countries.
