In statements sent to Syrian media, the country’s Minister of Electricity Ghassan Al-Zamil said that "The line is not ready, and we have been working permanently and at a high pace to finish it since the first day of the agreement."

He added that the cost of repairing Syria’s power grid side is estimated at $5.5 million.
The project was announced in September amid an acute energy shortage made worse by an ongoing financial crisis in the country.

Khasawneh said that personnel only have to complete setting up the area’s “linking process and supporting devices”.

Khasawneh added that "The security situation is perfect, and about 2,000 people per day will benefit from the movement of trade.”
