By Huseyn Hasanov – Trend:
Turkmenistan's energy industry works to increase electricity supplies to Afghanistan, the Turkmen Dovlet Habarlary state news agency reported.
At this stage, under the previously concluded contract, 700 million kilowatt hours of electricity is supplied to the neighboring state each year in two directions – through the Imamnazar-Andkhoy and Serhetabat-Herat-Turgundy power transmission lines.
It is planned to establish cooperation on energy supplies to the Afghan provinces of Badghis and Jowzjan.
The work will be carried out in line with the agreement signed in July 2017 between the Ministry of Energy of Turkmenistan and the Ministry of Energy and Water of Afghanistan.
Currently, on the basis of relevant documents and agreements, targeted steps are being taken to further increase the electricity export to Afghanistan, says the report.
Earlier, it was reported that Turkmenistan supplies electricity to the neighboring state at preferential prices.
