KABUL, a media report said on Sunday.

Acting Foreign Minister Hanif Atmar and Iran’s Energy Minister Reza Ardakanian conferred on cooperation in the power sector on Saturday night.

Mehr News Agency reported preparations for holding a joint economic commission next month and joint economic programmes came up for discussion.

Power generation schemes within the framework of joint projects and a cut in tariffs on imported electricity also figured at the video conference.

The report said preferential tariffs on Afghan agricultural exports to Iran were also discussed by the ministers.

Ardakanian reaffirmed Iran’s cooperation with Afghanistan, especially in the field of power production and transmission.

Energy-deficient Afghanistan is currently reliant on electricity imports from Iran, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan.
