BISHKEK : Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan are ready to export up to 5 billion kWh annually to Pakistan under CASA-1000 project. The Director General of the National Electric Network of Kyrgyzstan Company Medetbek Aitkulov informed Friday at the meeting with journalists. According to him, Pakistan has a deficit of energy resources that is why it is ready to buy electricity. “The World Bank, the Asian and Islamic Development Banks manage negotiations on CASA-1000 project. The Asian Development Bank refused financing after the crisis. The project is difficult, because each country has its individual social, economic and political situation,” Medetbek Aitkulov said.
He explained that Kyrgyzstan can export up to 2 billion kWh without losses. “The cost of sold energy isn’t defined. The negotiations continue. Besides, the National Electric Network of Kyrgyzstan constructs power transmission lines and Electric Stations OJSC is engaged in energy sale,” Medetbek Aitkulov added.
