"Electricity connections have a great importance within the European electricity network. Turkey has an outstanding geographical position as a passageway regarding natural gas, oil and electricity as well. All the recent developments make Turkey a key energy player in the world," Energy and Natural Resources Minister Hilmi Guler said Monday.

The comments, reported by the Anatolia news agency, came after Guler returned from Iran.

During the two-day visit, the two countries agreed to improve electricity transmission lines. He said with the new lines being set up, it was possible to transfer nearly 3 billion to 6 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity annually.
