Saurabh Kumar named Indias new envoy to Iran

New Delhi: Saurabh Kumar, an IFS officer of 1989 batch, was on Monday appointed as the next Indian Ambassador to Iran. 

The officer is currently posted as a Joint Secretary in the National Security Council Secretariat. 

He is expected to take up his assignment soon. 

Notwithstanding US objections, India had earlier this month signed a crucial agreement with Iran for the development of the strategically important Chabahar port which will give India sea-land access route to Afghanistan bypassing Pakistan.
