Iran to Build 2 Power Plants in Iraq

The Iraqi government unveils a plan to build two power plants with the help of Iran to generate electricity in the war-torn country.

The agreement was reached between Iraqi officials and Iran's Energy Minister Parviz Fattah in Baghdad on Wednesday.

Iran voiced its willingness to provide Iraq with further electricity exports by installing a number of power transmission lines, Aswat al-Iraq quoted an Iraqi Ministry of Electricity statement as saying.

The two neighboring countries will construct power plants in Najaf and al-Haydariya. Iran also has agreed to build two electricity transmission lines in the Iraqi cities of Kufa and Karbala.

Iranian engineers are helping in the reconstruction of the water and power infrastructure in Iraq.

Iranian companies have been active in the reconstruction of power substations and sewage systems damaged during the 2003 US invasion of Iraq. source
