Afghanistan, Turkmenistan sign cooperation pact in the field of electric power

President Ashraf Ghani led a high-level delegation to Ashgabat, Turkmenistan to confer on enhancing bilateral relations between the two nations.

He was accompanied by his two vice-presidents, Gen. Abdur Rashid Dostam and Mohammad Mohaqiq, National Security Adviser Hanif Atmar and Chief Executive Officer of Da Afghanistan Breshna Sherkat (DABS), Abdul Razique Samadi.

President Ghani said his country supports the construction of the Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan-India (TAPI) gas pipeline, which stretches from the largest gas field in Turkmenistan, Galkynysh, through Afghanistan’s provinces of Herat and Kandahar to Fazilka, area located between India and Pakistan.

Turkmenistan is one of the main suppliers of electricity to Afghanistan. Afghanistan will receive up to 500 megawatts of Turkmen electricity after completion of construction of power plants and other facilities in Lebap and Mary provinces of Turkmenistan.

A Memorandum of Understanding was signed between the two governments on further development of cooperation in the field of electric power.

A Joint Communique and a number of other documents were also signed to boost cooperation between the two nations.
