About Mokran

Mokran, The forgotten treasure


Mokran is a semi-desert coastal strip in Balochistan, in Pakistan and Iran, along the coast of the Persian Gulf and the Gulf of Oman. The name Mokran derives from Maka, borne by an overlapping satrapy of the Achaemenid Empire. Another, older derivation is from the Makar, or sea dragon, after the humpback whales or whale sharks that abound in the north Arabian Sea.

The Importance and Geopolitical Values of Mokran Coast One of the most important features of this area, is its proximitiy to the international waters around the southern border, and being a direct neighbor with Pakistan and Afghanistan and an indirect neighbour with the Central Asian countries (through Turkmenistan). Mokran is a signifienct way for these landlocked countries (except Pakistan) to connect the high seas.

Should the necessary infrastructure develops, Mokran has the potential to play a significantly important and strategic role in the region. Another main advantage of this region, is the importance of Iran’s position in Economic Cooperation Organization and the role it plays in regards of the main purposes of this organization.
