India, Afghanistan, Iran to hold trilateral meet on transport agreement

India, Afghanistan and Iran will hold a trilateral meeting next month to finalise an agreement on transport and transit between the three countries, a senior Indian official said on Thursday.

“The first meeting of the expert group was held in Tehran last year. Only a few points of the draft are left to be finalised,” he said. According to New Kerala.

In the second meeting in India, sometime in April, the remaining points are expected to be tied up, Swarup added.
