Iraq will continue to receive electricity supply from Iran for one more year
Iraq will continue to receive from Iran electricity supply for one more year, the Iraqi electricity ministry said in a statement on Wednesday. The agreement came during recent meetings in Baghdad between Iraqi electricity minister Qassem al-Fahdawi and his Iranian counterpart, Mohammad Shariatmadari. Both parties agreed to extend the supply contract for one more year through the current four active supply lines. Iraq currently imports 1000 megawatts from Iran. Iran is supplying parts of Iraq electricity for past several years and this caused electricity crisis to be reduced in some cities, specially the neighboring cities of Iran.
