LEBANON – According to IRNA, Iranian Energy Minister Ali-Akbar Mehrabian has declared the conclusion of a power transfer line to Pakistan’s neighbour in an effort to increase energy trades between the two nations.
According to reports, the two nations formally agreed to use the aforementioned transmission line on Monday for the exchange of up to 200 megawatts (MW) of energy in the near future.
In a ceremony witnessed by both of the aforementioned men, the aforementioned contract was inked.
On the margins of a meeting with Dastgir-Khan before the signing event, Mehrabian told the press that the 200 megawatt energy transmission line between Iran and Pakistan was planned and constructed in less than a year.
He declared that the line had undergone all required tests and trials and was now electrified.
“There were positive talks about the interchange of power through this connection in today’s meeting with the Pakistani minister of energy,” Mehrabian continued.
The official estimated that the present yearly trade between the two nations is worth over two billion dollars and added that the building of this line will increase the amount of electricity exchanged between the nations to 200 megawatts, which will significantly strengthen the economic ties.
For his part, Dastgir-Khan referred to his earlier visit to Iran, saying that during this trip, “efforts were made to reach a final agreement and the progress of the previous agreements regarding the electricity exchanges between the two countries through the electricity transmission line was pursued.”
He continued, underscoring the significance of strengthening and expanding ties between the two nations, saying:
“It is anticipated that we will observe the growth of energy trades between the two nations with the final agreement following the creation of technical and business teams.”
The two neighboring nations’ energy ministers met for the second time in less than a year at this conference. During his visit to Tehran in June of last year, Dastgir-Khan conferred with Mehrabian.
