Tehran 14 March 2023: Pakistan and Iran have signed a contract to increase their electricity exchange.

The contract was signed in a ceremony in Tehran attended by Iranian Energy Minister Ali-Akbar Mehrabian and visiting Pakistani counterpart Khurram Dastgir Khan, reports Xinhua news agency.

Under the deal, the electricity exchange capacity between the two countries via the newly built 132-kilovolt transmission lines will increase by 100 megawatts (MW) to reach 200 MW in the first phase.
