Afghanistan’s electricity administration (Da Afghanistan Breshna Sherkat) in a statement said that Uzbekistan has extended the agreement of importing electricity to Afghanistan for the year, 2022.
DABS in the statement said that the chief executive of the body Hafi Muhammad Amin signed the agreement with the head of Uzbekistan’s national firm of electricity in the Uzbek capital, Tashkent.
The agreement was finalized after three-day negotiations between the two sides.
Based on the agreement, Uzbekistan will be exporting up to two billion KW of electricity to Afghanistan that will cost the latter one hundred million dollars.
In the meantime, the two sides have also discussed the 500 KW project of electricity to be resumed.
The extension of the contract comes days after Tajikistan extended its contract of electricity to Afghanistan for a year.
Being an import-reliant country, Afghanistan imports 80% of electricity and produces only 20% from domestic resources.
The Afghan people have always asked the Afghan governments to control the country’s water now flowing to the neighboring Iran and Pakistan.
