Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi speaks at a joint press conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin

Berlin (IraqiNews.com) – Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi described on Tuesday German conglomerate Siemens as “a main partner” in a road-map agreement aimed to upgrade the country’s electricity grid.

Speaking at a joint press conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Abdul Mahdi said that Siemens “will carry out a four-stage power project in Iraq at a total cost of 14 billion dollars.”

“Siemens competes with the General Electric Co (GE) for a contract to develop the electricity sector in Iraq,” Iraqi website Alghad Press quoted the premier as saying.

Abdul Mahdi started on Monday a visit to Germany as part of a European tour that will take him to France as well.
