Thursday, February 18
Georgia can supply electricity surplus to Iran in the spring and summer through Armenia and have it returned for winter when electricity consumption increases in the country, Georgian Energy Minister Kakha Kaladze said.

Kaladze went on an official visit to Iran on Feb. 16. Issues of cooperation in the energy sector between the two countries are currently under consideration.

“When we have a surplus of electricity, excess in volume of water in spring and summer, Iran needs energy and the country imports it from Armenia,” the Georgian Energy Ministry’s press service quoted Kaladze as saying.

“The fact that Iran is in general a very important and interesting country is not something new, especially after the removal of the financial sanctions against Tehran,” the Georgian minister said. (
