Iranian President Ebrahim Raeisi and his Azerbaijani counterpart Ilham Aliyev have inaugurated a dam built jointly by the two neighboring Muslim states on the Aras River at their common border. The Qiz Qalasi dam, which represents the largest joint water project between Iran and the Republic of Azerbaijan, was put into operation at a ceremony attended by the two heads of state on Sunday. The embankment dam is located in the Khoda Afarin region in Iran’s northwestern province of East Azarbaijan. The project, with a capacity of 62 million cubic meters, will reportedly supply water to the irrigation and drainage networks of Khoda Afarin County Known as the biggest water project in Iran’s northwestern border areas, the Qiz Qalasi dam is estimated to regulate 2 billion cubic meters of water every year. A hydroelectric power station coupled with the dam is projected to generate 270 megawatt hours of electricity per annum. Iranian Minister of Energy Ali Akbar Mehrabian has described the Qiz Qalasi dam as a symbol of friendship between the people of Iran and the Republic of Azerbaijan. The dam has been constructed according to the latest and most modern engineering standards, he added. Presstv
