The Energy Ministry of Georgia supposes that the country may inaugurate negotiations with Iran on electricity exports.
Georgia considers Iran as the huge market for electricity exports. If negotiations end fruitfully, Georgia may export electricity to Iran, Afghanistan and Iraq, Mariam Valishvili, the first deputy Energy Minister of Georgia, told GBC.
Georgia can export electricity through the transmission lines, which connect Georgia with Armenia and Azerbaijan, Valishvili noted.
The Foreign Minister of Iran expressed willingness to launch cooperation with Georgia in the energy sector on January 18, 2010 at the meeting with Georgian Foreign Minister Grigol Vashadze.
