the first of the power plant that Iran is to construct outside its
borders, he added.

Iran and Armenia signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) here on
Saturday to bolster bilateral cooperation in the field of electricity.

The MOU was signed by Iran's Energy Minister Habibollah Bitaraf and
his Armenian counterpart Armen Movsisyan.

Under the MOU, Iran and Armenia reached consensus to implement the

million dollars.

The two countries are also slated to implement the second phase of

power plant.

Under the framework of the agreement, Iranian companies of the Iran
Power Plant Projects Management Company (MAPNA) and SANIR are due to
add a new unit of gas power plant, capable of being transformed into
combined cycle, to Armenia. The project is worth 150 million dollars.
