Why was the agreement reached despite American bullying?

According to a Mint report, America had prepared a policy regarding Chabahar in 2018. According to this, the exemption was given regarding some agreements with Iran. indian officials say that the statements given by America now are contrary to this. Former Foreign Secretary Kanwal Sibal calls the American warning a hasty step. Sibal writes- This is an example of raw diplomacy. Will india not be in touch with America before the deal on Chabahar?

Strategic affairs expert Brahma Chellani writes - This is America's extremism, due to which it immediately issued a warning on the public platform. Chellani has also reposted a post on this issue, in which it is written that America is not ready to understand what the rest of the world is thinking about it.

In 2016, Pakistan's Dawn newspaper made a report on this quoting experts.

I think after the agreement, pakistan will be isolated. china has also not issued any statement on this yet, but in 2016, China's official newspaper Global Times had written an editorial regarding this. According to this, india wants to reduce the political and economic influence of pakistan in this area through Chabahar.
