Iran's Power Supply to Iraq Cut Over Rising Domestic Demand

Energy Minister Reza Ardakanian said on Tuesday Iran has cut power export to Iraq so as to meet its rising domestic demand.
"The soaring power consumption in the hot season has made us cut power supplies to the neighboring state," Ardakanian was also quoted as saying by Mehr News Agency.
Iran cut off electricity supplies to Iraq, as constant blackouts and water shortages in the southern Khuzestan Province in the face of high temperatures triggered a series of protests.
Ardakanian said Iran's electricity export contracts secure its right to cut supplies when it needs electricity for domestic use during peak consumption times of the year.
