Armenia, Iran Set To Start Power Plant Construction

After years of negotiations, Armenia and Iran will start building two major hydro-electric stations on their border in the coming weeks and possibly days, Energy Minister Armen Movsisian announced on Thursday.

Movsisian said he and his Iranian counterpart Majid Namju will inaugurate the start of construction work on the Arax river separating the two countries immediately after signing a relevant agreement in Yerevan.

The dates of Namju’s upcoming visit to Armenia are still being “clarified,” he said. Other officials told RFE/RL’s Armenian service that the Iranian energy minister will likely arrive before the end of this month.

The Armenian government formally approved the agreement and authorized Movsisian to sign it at a meeting earlier in the day. Prime Minister Tigran hailed the impending launch of the “important” commercial project that will give a major boost to Armenian-Iranian commercial ties.
