India And Iran Walk Into A Coffee Shop… And Don’t Invite Pakistan
Iran and India signed a pact yesterday to develop the Iranian port of Chabahar close to the border of Pakistan. The agreement is seen as a snub to India’s archnemesis, Pakistan, which sits squarely between the two countries. The port agreement will allow Iran to circumvent Pakistan and sell goods directly to Afghanistan and Russia much easier. Fun fact: Iran and India haven’t been this “close” since Nader Shah of Persia invaded Delhi and stole the Koh-I-Noor diamond in 1739.
