Iran is reported to be keen to increase its electricity supply to Pakistan from 130 megawatts to 3,000 megawatts.
According to Pakwired, the Iranian Consul General to Pakistan, Ahmad Mohammadi, told an event in Karachi:
“The expansion of ties with neighboring countries is one of the priorities of Iran’s foreign policy and Pakistan, being a Muslim neighboring country, has a very special place in the foreign policy of Iran. Iran desires prosperity, security and stability of Pakistan and believes that it will also be beneficial for Iran.”
