Iran’s Ambassador to India Gholamreza Ansari Thursday said Tehran was probing into the case surrounding alleged Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav and his business activities in Chabahar. He said Iran, after completing its own probe, will share the findings with “friendly countries”.

While Pakistan has alleged that Jadhav, who was running a business in Chabahar, was caught in Pakistan for “subversive activities” in Balochistan, India has said he was abducted from Iran.

“We are trying to complete our own information on this case. I don’t think I am in a position now to say any more about that. We are looking into this issue very accurately,” Ansari said at a media interaction at the Foreign Correspondents’ Club of South Asia on Thursday.

On the proposed Iran-Pakistan-India pipeline, he said, “I think we should forget about pipeline because the people who have invested in the LNG in India… I don’t think that they will let any pipes to come in a substantial quantity. They have invested in LNG so much … Americans are looking for the Indian market for the future. And any sort of pipeline will put an end to these investments. So I don’t think pipelines can be a serious project. I am sure Americans will not let this pipeline go ahead which they have done before as well,” the Iranian envoy said.

On the possible competition between Chabahar and Gwadar ports, he said he does not see it in that manner. He proposed that since they are just 72 km apart, they could be linked in the future.

On the possible visit by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, he said that “sooner, the better”, without giving out any dates.
