Tehran, Baku serious in boosting ties in energy

Iran’s Energy Minister Ali Akbar Mehrabian, at the head of a delegation, is to leave Tehran for Baku, Azerbaijan, today 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.

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

It was motto of President Ebrahim Raisi 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, Iran’s neighbor in north of the country, 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 agreement on cooperation between Iran and Azerbaijan on construction and use of Khoda Afarin and Qiz Qalasi dams.
