Iran prez Hassan Rouhani to begin his India visit from Hyderabad

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, center, speaks during the inauguration a newly built extension of the port of Chabahar, near the Pakistani border, on the Gulf of Oman, southeastern Iran, Sunday, Dec. 3, 2017.

"For the past 39 years, the regime's control of news and information has been implacable and its persecution of media independence has been unparalleled", a statement added, citing "police and judicial harassment".

The visit comes at a time when the USA, under President Donald Trump, has kept Iran on tenterhooks with repeated threats of trade sanctions as well as threats to pull out of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) nuclear agreement. In Delhi, Rouhani, who will be accompanied by a large Iranian delegation, is likely to sign memoranda of understanding with the government of India.

"A hassle-free route has been identified for the convoy of the President of Iran, Dr Hassan Rouhani". However, Iran says the terms it has offered are not profitable. During President Rouhani's visit, both sides would review the progress achieved in bilateral relations and also exchange views on regional and global issues of mutual interest.

India is working to equip and operate two berths in Chabahar Port Phase-I with a capital investment of $85 million and annual revenue expenditure of $23 million on a 10-year lease. The two ministers are understood to have reviewed the implementation of the Chabahar port project in which India is a key partner.

During Modi's bilateral visit to Iran in 2016, almost a dozen pacts were signed between the two countries.

According to Tehran based Iranian Students News Agency (ISNA) Rouhani will travel to India at the official invitation of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, during which he will meet Indian officials.

"The banks' American interests are more important ... the moment you mention that THE destination is Iran they don't come forward".
