Iran resumes power supplies to Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan

KABUL: Iranian Energy Minister Reza Ardakanian said Saturday that Iran has resumed electricity supplies to neighboring countries after it overcame its domestic power shortage.
“Iran is committed to supplying electricity to neighboring countries of Iraq, Pakistan and Afghanistan,” Ardakanian told reporters on Saturday, while he did not reject the possibility to import power from some other neighboring countries as well.
Iran cut electricity supplies to Iraq due to unpaid bills as well as a sharp rise in domestic consumption during the hot days in summer back in July.
The Iranian energy minister said that the Iraqi side has started paying its accumulated bills, calling for an acceleration in the process of payments.He also said that Iran will probably import power from Turkmenistan and Armenia if necessary.
