Iran has agreed to supply 2,000 megawatts (MW) of electricity to Balochistan out of which 1,000 MW electricity will be utilised in the Gwadar project while the remaining 1,000 MW will be supplied to the rest of the province.
This was stated by Balochistan Chief Minister Dr Abdul Malik during a joint press conference with Iran’s Sistan-Baluchistan province Governor Aqai Ali Osat Hashmi on Monday.
The CM said that he has invited Iranian entrepreneurs to invest in Pakistan’s fisheries, industry, and mining sectors. He also expressed hope that the Pak-Iran gas pipeline project will be implemented soon.
Speaking about the prevention of border incidents, Dr Malik said that border committees of the two countries will meet on January 27 and 28 to discuss necessary measures.
On the other hand, the Iranian governor said that Pakistan accords much importance to its relations with Pakistan, adding that some mischievous elements want to create disturbance on the border to harm Pakistan-Iran relations.
