Impact of Raisi's death on India's relations

The death of Iran's President is no less than a deep shock for India. In fact, not only are there trade relations between iran and india, butboth the countries are also important strategic partners of each other. The Iranian President was also going to come to india this year, but he died tragically in this sudden accident.

Raisi had a very positive attitude towards india and also had good relations with narendra Modi. This is the reason why india continued its trade and strategic partnership with iran after American sanctions. Some time ago, india had signed a big agreement with iran on Chabahar Port. Under this agreement, Chabahar Port will be operated by india for at least the next 10 years. Ibrahim Raisi played a very important role in bringing this deal to a conclusion. It was strategically important for india to get to Chabahar Port. This was not only a route to Eurasia and Eastern Europe, but through this india is also exploring routes to the Middle east and Europe. In such a situation, theChabahar Agreement is a big achievement for india and it is expected that in this situation india will not leave Iran.
