TEHERAN, September 10. /ITAR-TASS/. President of Iran Hassan Rouhani has arrived in Tajikistan's capital, Dushanbe, to join Tajik President Emomali Rahmon in commissioning a $220 million hydroelectric plant partnering the two countries, the Islamic Republic News Agency said on Wednesday.

Iran contributed $180 million for the eight-year construction of the Sangtuda 2 Vakhsh river installation, the second in a series of two to be built there. The first unit came on stream in 2011.

Rouhani is in Dushanbe for a summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) to be held there on September 11-12.

His delegation arrived from Kazakhstan after a two-day meeting with Kazakh leader Nursultan Nazarbayev delivered agreements on industry, trade and transport partnership.
