A meeting of Pakistan’s Economic Coordination Committee was held in Islamabad, chaired by Pakistani Finance Minister Mohammad Ishaq Dar.
Ministers of energy, oil, information, trade and industries attended the meeting.
They discussed a new contract with the Iran Organization for Management of Electric Power Generation and Transmission (TAVANIR) to purchase 104 megawatts of electricity.
Pakistan’s new plan to strengthen energy cooperation with Iran comes a few days after an official visit by Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian to Islamabad.
Following the visit, Amirabdollahian said he had very important talks with his Pakistani counterpart on the Iran gas transmission pipeline project to Pakistan.
He added that the completion of this project will benefit both sides.
