Iran has agreed to supply Iraq with power, the Iranian Minister of Power announced.
"We had fruitful talks with Iraqi delegation," Habibollah Bitaraf said, adding that it was decided to build a joint electricity network on the Iraqi border so that they would be able to make use of Iran’s energy supplies. The minister also said that a team of experts are in charge of studying the possibilities of the project.

The two sides have made the approbation during their meeting in Tehran, according to which Iran agreed to sell its electricity to Iraq. Water projects have also been discussed and are supposed to be the next case of cooperation between the two neighbouring countries.

"Talks are still under way to determine whether Iran agrees to transfer its water to Kuwait," Bitaraf stated. Natural gas is reported to be the main fuel used in Iranian power plants, he stated, saying, "In order to save natural resources, it is planned to provide these plants with liquid fuels under oil ministry authorization."
