Iran to supply 70MW electricity to Afghanistan, Pakistan
Managing Director of Iran's state-run Power Supply and Distribution Company (TAVANIR) Homayoun Ha'eri said Iran plans to boost power supplies to these two neighbouring countries through its south eastern Sistan and Balouchestan province.
IRAN WILL export 70MW of electricity to Afghanistan and Pakistan this Iranian year (which ends on March 20).
 
Managing Director of Iran's state-run Power Supply and Distribution Company (TAVANIR) Homayoun Ha'eri said Iran plans to boost power supplies to these two neighbouring countries through its south eastern Sistan and Balouchestan province, Fars news agency reports.
 
His company is expanding infrastructures in Sistan and Balouchestan province to the same end, the official added.
 
He said Iran would start increasing supplies to Afghanistan and Pakistan once the 400kv transmission line, between the city of Zahedan in the Sistan and Baluchistan province and the city of Birjand in the South Khorassan province, came online in the near future.

Sistan and Baluchistan border with Afghanistan, and South Khorassan province borders with Pakistan.

Iran is one of the most important donors to Afghanistan, which has kept its promises to help to the reconstruction of the war-ravaged country, by building roads, power transmission lines, border stations and many other infrastructure projects to better link the two nations.

Also, Iran has offered cheap electricity to Pakistan to supply the country''s acute energy shortages, and the offer has been widely welcomed by the Pakistani authorities, especially those in charge of the country''s bordering provinces with Iran.
