Azerbaijan, Baku , Mar.29/ Trend F.Milad
Iran will soon start constructing Ayni hydroelectric power station on the Zarafshan River in Tajikistan, Iran's Foreign Minister Ali-Akbar Salehi said on Friday.
Salehi announced the agreement during his visit to Dushanbe, the IRNA News Agency reported.
The agreement between the two countries to build the Ayni hydroelectric power station was reached in 2010, and a memorandum of understanding for the project signed a year later.
Iranian experts had previously developed a feasibility study for the project.
The HPP's capacity will be 240 megawatts.
Previously, Sangtuda-2 was built with the assistance of Iran on the Vakhsh River in Tajikistan. Its launch at full capacity is scheduled for this week.
