Ministry spokesperson Ahmed Musa revealed the start date for the first phase of linking with Jordan and explained why plans to link up with Turkey have not yet been launched, despite the preparations being completed at the end of last year.

Linking with Jordan to begin next JuneAccording to Musa, work on linking with Jordan is currently underway, and the first phase is expected to start at the beginning of June with a capacity of 150 megawatts.

He stated that the "power supply for all Iraqi provinces is now integrated after the ministry carried out significant work, taking advantage of the moderate temperatures in recent times". While some areas are experiencing technical problems, Musa assured that they will be quickly resolved by the ministry's staff.

Turkey, Gulf connectionsMusa confirmed that preparations to link up with Turkey have been completed, but Iraq is waiting for a suitable pricing list before the final operation agreement can be applied.

Regarding linkages with Gulf countries, Musa explained that work is ongoing, including the establishment of a line that connects the Iraqi Al-Faw station with the Al-Wafrah station in Kuwait.
