Kyrgyzstan plans to export electricity to Pakistan via Afghanistan

KABUL: Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan are going to export electricity to Pakistan next year as part of the CASA-1000 project, Da Afghanistan Breshna Sherkat said in a statement Saturday. Afghanistan will receive 70 million U.S. dollars in transit fees per year, the statement said. The CASA-1000 power extension program is a 1.2 billion U.S. dollars project for the export of power generated in Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan through Afghanistan and work on it is nearly complete in the three countries. Previously, Kyrgyzstan signed a joint declaration with Pakistan and Tajikistan to resume the CASA-1000 project. Earlier, Da Afghanistan Breshna Sherkat (DABS) announced that the work on the CASA-1000 project in Afghanistan was set to resume after a two-year delay with financial support from the World Bank.
