Syria and Iran agreed to expand their cooperation in the fields of energy, technology and utilization of water resources, state media in Damascus reported Monday. Iranian Minister of Energy Majid Namjou met in the Syrian capital with Syrian Prime Minister Mohammed Naji Otri and other officials on Sunday, resulting in several agreements, including one to expand a power plant.

At a cost of some 240 million euros (356.3 million dollars), the two countries would expand the Jender Power Station near Homs, in central Syria. Iran also pledged to help introduce better irrigation systems to save water in Syria. Source: dpa
