    Iraq’s electricity ministry said Friday that power supplies from Iran were halted due to Iraq’s soaring debt, exacerbating the nation-wide supply shortage.

    Anadolu Agency quoted ministry spokesman, Mosaab al-Madras, saying that Iran cut off electricity supplies to Iraq (1000 megawatts) on Thursday, adding to outages in Dhi Qar, Maysan and Basra provinces. He attributed the cut to Iraq’s growing debts to Iran regarding the imported electricity.
