    Uzbek blackout halts electricity supplies to Afghanistan

    January 25, 2022 - Interfax Russia & CIS General Newswire


      TASHKENT. Jan 25 (Interfax) - A massive power outage has forced Uzbekistan to suspend electricity supplies to Afghanistan, the Uzbek Ministry of Energy stated on Tuesday.

      "Due to a major shutdown of electricity in our national grid, supplies to Afghanistan have been suspended," the statement said.

      Currently, the top priority is to restore power supply for domestic consumption, it said.

      "Export to Afghanistan will resume as soon as the situation allows," the ministry said.

      It was reported that at 11 a.m. this morning, grids went down in several regions of Uzbekistan, presumably due to a failure in the Central Asian joint power system.

      Afghanistan imports electricity under a ten-year contract signed in 2019 between DABS company and Uzbekistan's National Electric Grids for the delivery of up to 6 billion kWh of electricity per year. Uzbekistan supplies Afghan consumers with around 35 MWh daily.
