Iraq agreed with Iran to renew the import of energy for an additional year


The Ministry of Electricity announced on Wednesday its agreement with Iran to renew the import of electricity for an additional year.
“Minister of Electricity Qassem Al-Fahdawi agreed with Iranian Minister of Industry and Trade Mohammad Shariatmadari during his meeting at the ministry’s headquarters in Baghdad to renew the contract of importing electricity from Iran for an additional year of the same four lines currently operating,” the ministry said in a statement.
“The two sides also discussed means of joint cooperation between Iraq and Iran in the field of electric energy and overcoming the obstacles and push towards strengthening the relationship to serve the systems of electric power of Iraq and Iran, as well as discuss the link between the two countries.”
Iraq currently imports electricity from Iran by 1000 megawatts across four lines – the Kermanshah-Diyala line, the Srebil-Zahab-Khanaqin line, the Abadan-Basrah line, and the Karkh-Amara line, feeding these provinces through high-voltage power lines.
