Iran Chabahar, Oman’s Sohar to link up as sister ports

Financial Tribune – Iran’s southeastern port of Chabahar will pair with Oman’s Sohar as sister ports in the near future, the head of Sistan-Baluchestan Cultural Heritage, Handcraft and Tourism Directorate said.

“The move would help improve cultural, economic and commercial ties between the two ports and eventually boost friendship and tourism between the two nations,” local media quoted Alireza Jalalzaee as saying.

Sisterhood between towns, cities, counties, provinces, regions, states and even countries in geographically and politically distinct areas refers to a form of legal or social agreement to promote cultural and commercial ties.
