Iran and Qatar energy ministers have come together to discuss joining the two countries’ electricity networks via a submarine cable.
In a virtual meeting held on Monday September 28, 2020, the Qatari minister, Saad Sherida Al-Kaabi, said that the project was possible while adding that a “proposal should be worked on”.
“In my opinion, this idea is practical and it is possible to implement it,” Al-Kaabi added.
Iranian minister, Reza Ardakanian, said his government was “constantly exchanging power with its neighbouring countries.”
“Qatar has surplus production of power, which has a good market in the regional counties, such as Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Iraq,” Ardakanian, chair of the two countries’ joint economic committee, noted.
