Ahmad Mousa al-Abadi, the spokesman of the Iraqi Ministry of Electricity, noted on Saturday: "Gas import from Iran is 45 million cubic meters, but the actual need is more than this amount."
 
Al-Abadi added that after paying for Iran's gas, the percentage of gas import from this country increased to 45 million cubic meters, but our actual need is between 50 and 55 million cubic meters.
 
It should be noted that Iraq had paid 1.6 billion dollars as a gas debt to Iran at the end of last June, after which Tehran's exports to Iraq increased by 5 million cubic meters per day.
 
Iraq suffers from a major problem in electricity supply, and the electricity in many Iraqi cities is almost permanently cut off, especially in the summer when the temperature reaches 50 degrees.
