Iran, Iraq to Set Up Power Transmission Line
Iran and Iraq have reached an agreement to establish a power transmission line between the two countries, said an Iranian official Saturday.
Iran's Deputy Energy Minister Masoud Hojjat, who has wound up a four-day visit to Baghdad, told the official Iranian news agency (IRNA) that "expansion of Iran's electricity network to neighboring countries" had been one of his ministry's programs during the past few years.
Iranian and Iraqi experts and officials have concluded talks on the establishment of an energy transfer line between the two countries, he said, adding that the project would get off the ground after the two sides' senior officials approved the plan.
A number of Iraqi electricity officials visited Iran last year to review bilateral cooperation with Iranian officials in that field, said IRNA - Albawaba.com
