Syria, Iran Sign Electricity, Water Agreements, Sana Reports

July 27 (Bloomberg) -- A Syrian delegation on a visit to Tehran has signed agreements with Iran in the fields of electricity, health and water, Syria’s state-run Sana news agency said.

The Iranian Energy Ministry and the Syrian Electricity Ministry signed a memorandum of understanding on supplying Syria with electricity, importing transmission and distribution equipment, establishing generating plants and installing automatic remote reading systems, Sana said.

Another agreement covered the establishment of waste-water treatment plants and setting up a water resource management plan in Syria, while officials also discussed sale of medical equipment and medicine, according to the agency.

Syria has been under international sanctions since last year because of the government’s crackdown on protests, and has been seeking to compensate by boosting trade with allied countries such as Iran.
