Tehran, Baku serious in boosting energy ties

Heading a delegation, Iranian Energy Minister Ali Akbar Mehrabian left Tehran for Baku, Azerbaijan, on Tuesday to review ways to widen cooperation as the two countries are seriously determined to develop cooperation in the fields of energy and electricity.

Also, important documents on cooperation are to be signed during the Baku visit, IRNA reported.

Development of cooperation with regional states, the neighbors in particular, is an important strategy being followed up by the Iranian government.

It was the motto of President Seyyed Ebrahim Raeisi during his campaign before June 2021 presidential election that diplomacy would not be limited to political relations, but it should include economic ties.

So, Azerbaijan has special position in country's regional relations.

Reportedly, Mehrabian’s visit to Baku is important, as it is to review energy issues, exchange of electricity and situation of the joint projects, including Khoda Afarin Dam.

About six years ago, the Iranian Parliament approved an agreement on cooperation between Iran and Azerbaijan for construction and use of Khoda Afarin and Qiz Qalasi dams.
