Tajikistan, Iran, Afghanistan Sign Deal On Electric Power Line

DUSHANBE, 21 February 2006 (RFE/RL) -- Tajikistan, Iran, and Afghanistan have concluded a trilateral agreement on the construction of a power line to carry electricity to Kunduz and Herat in Afghanistan, and to Mashhad in Iran.

The deal was signed a day after Iranian Energy Minister Parviz Fattah and Afghan Water and Energy Minister Mohammad Ismail Khan joined Tajikistan's President Imomali Rakhmonov at a ceremony to mark the start of work on a new hydroelectric power plant south of the Tajik capital, Dushanbe.

The new Sangtuda-2 facility will, along with the Sangtuda-1 and Roghun power plants, provide electricity for the new power line to Afghanistan and Iran.
