Economy News Baghdad:

TEHRAN (Reuters) - Iran said on Tuesday it had resumed supplying Iraq and other neighboring countries with electricity for 10 days after disruptions in Iraqi cities provoked unrest in July .

Tehran stopped supplying electricity to Iraq in July for not paying bills and rising domestic consumption in Iran during the summer .

The power outage in Iraq has sparked protests in Basra and other cities, and residents attributed this to what they called government corruption and incompetence .

Some protests in Iran have also erupted in recent months due to ongoing power and water cuts .

The Iranian government says a seasonal drought has depleted rivers, reducing electricity production from dams .

Deputy Minister of Energy Mahmoud Reza Hakki Fam said his country resumed electricity exports to Iraq .

"We are now exporting 200 to 250 megawatts of electricity to Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan, " he said.

Saudi Arabia last month offered to sell electricity to Baghdad at a discount, as part of Saudi Arabia's efforts to reduce the influence of its rival Iran in Iraq .

Iran is bound and determined to keep hold of Iraq, right by the short hairs- Iraq needs to build their OWN 30,000 megawatt power plants, and to keep from having dependence on Iran- Iraq would be a lot better off-
