Iranian FM Mohammad Javad Zarif was on a visit to India last week, where he has met with Indian counterpart Sushma Swaraj.

“During the talks, the two sides also exchanged views on a further expansion of ties in banking, energy, trade, insurance, shipping, use of national currencies, Chabahar projects and Chabahar-Zahedan railway.
