Uzbekistan continues exporting electricity to Afghanistan

Kabul, Oct 6 (Prensa Latina) The Afghan government reported on Wednesday that Uzbekistan continues supplying electricity without interruption, despite the Central Asian nation's unpaid debt.

The Taliban movement’s executive on Wednesday called on energy exporting countries not to cut electricity and pledged to pay debts as the cold winter months loom, Ariana news agency reported.

An official said that the country owes 62 million dollars in electricity to its neighbors but Afghan consumers also owe 500 million dollars to the electricity companies that supply energy.

Uzbekistan said that it will keep on supplying energy without mentioning anything about the debt.

Uzbek President Shavkat Mirziyoyev pointed out that his country is willing to sit down to negotiate with Taliban authorities as well as to take part in any projects that would help to strengthen peace.

Uzbekistan delivered 1,300 tons of aid in September to Afghanistan.
