Azerbaijan intends to increase electricity import from Russia
"Azerbaijan started talks to increase electric power import from Russia. Chief executive of Azerenerji Etibar Pirverdiev leads the negotiating process from the Azerbaijani side," Babanli said without detailing import volumes.
Russia's energy company Inter RAO said earlier that electricity supplies to Azerbaijan started from Monday night within the framework of the emergency mutual assistance agreement.
"We are supplying electric power to Azerbaijan within the framework of the emergency mutual assistance agreement from 23.45 of yesterday. 200 MW are supplied," TASS cited the company as saying. ■
