The Iranian defense minister said Saturday that his country will host an international conference on development of Makran, a stretch of coast southeast of Iran, Tasnim news agency reported.

Brigadier General Amir Hatami said the major conference on investment opportunities in Makran and sustainable development of the coastal area will be held in Tehran in February and March.

The conference would provide a great opportunity for domestic and foreign private sector investors to know about the unique options available in the region in the oil and gas industry, transportation, tourism and urban development, he was quoted as saying.

Following earlier remarks of Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, on the development of the region, strategic Makran region, on the north of Sea of Oman, has attracted the attention of many Iranian decision-makers and military officials.
