Iran and Siemens will sign an agreement in the near future on financing the first phase of the Jalal power plant project, said Mohammad Reza Ayatollahi, deputy head of Iran's Andoukhteh Shahed Institute, SHANA news agency reported June 8.
He said that during the recent visit of an Iranian trade delegation to European countries, talks were held with the German company on the issue.
Ayatollahi added that some 330-350 million euros of investments are needed for construction of the Jalal power plant's first phase.
