Iranian-Syrian memorandum to rebuilt Syrian national grid

By Khawla Hassan – Iran signed a preliminary agreement with Syria on Saturday to help rebuild its ally’s electricity grid, Iranian state media reported.

A memorandum of understanding signed by the two countries’ electricity ministers in Tehran covered the construction of power plants, transmission lines, cutting losses in Syria’s electricity network, and the possibility of connecting the two countries’ grids through Iraq, the state news agency IRNA said.

The report did not give the value of the deal. IRNA quoted Syrian Electricity Minister Mohammad Zuhair Kharboutli as saying the country’s grid had suffered damages of 50 percent and that “Iran’s role is important” in the reconstruction.
