Iran’s Energy Minister Majid Namjou says seven new countries have joined the list of states that have requested to buy electricity from Iran.
Namjou declared that Russia, India, Qatar, the UAE, Jordan, Syria and Oman are the new countries that have asked Iran for electricity.
He added that Iran has the capability to turn into a regional electricity hub.
“Iran exchanges electricity with most of its neighbors and many of them are interested in increasing their electricity exchange with Iran,” Mehr news agency quoted Namjou as saying on Sunday.
“There are also trilateral talks with Iran, Azerbaijan and Russia underway, that aim to connect Iran’s electricity network to Europe,” he added.
