Arash Kordi, the managing director of Iran Power Generation, Distribution and Transmission Company (Tavanir), told IRNA on Friday that the agreement will be signed on Saturday during an Iran-Turkmenistan Joint Economic Cooperation Commission.

He said that the agreement would require Turkmenistan to complete the electricity transfer project on its soil. Kordi added that Iran has already completed its own share of the project.  

Noting that Iran’s biggest share of electricity imports comes from Turkmenistan, the Iranian official said that some 350-400 MW of electricity is imported from the Central Asian country.
