Iranian President Rouhani in India

Iran President Hassan Rouhani pays tribute to Mahatma Gandhi at Rajghat

Speaking to reporters upon his arrival at Indira Gandhi International Airport of Friday night, Rouhani underlined that "good meetings were held in Hyderabad with Muslim people, as well as with prominent scholars and Iranians living in India".

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani meets President Ramnath Kovind and Prime Minister Narendra Modi at Rashtrapati Bhavan.

EMA talking head Raveesh Kumar said "Relationship spanning millennia and marked by civilizational and cultural bond".

Rouhani and PM Modi are expected to hold talks on a host of issues including trade, security and connectivity, and the strategically-important Chabahar port.

The Chabahar port in the Gulf country will open up the transit route for India to Iran and Afghanistan (bypassing Pakistan), Central Asian countries and Europe, he told a congregation at the historic Mecca Masjid here after offering Friday prayers. He will be officially welcomed by the president and prime minister of India at the presidential palace on Saturday.

In addition to this, Rouhani visited the tombs of Qutub Shahi rulers in the Golconda area in the city.

The project for restoration of the over 400-year-old complex started in 2013 after the Aga Khan Trust for Culture signed a memorandum of understanding with Telangana Department of Archaeology and Museums. Rouhani had reached India on Thursday on a 3-day visit.

"We will also hold talks with Indian officials on global and regional issues", president added. Focus could be on energy, trade and investment between both the countries.
