TEHRAN, May 21 (MNA) – Some 27 projects will be launched in West Azarbaijan province during President Hassan Rouhani’s visit to the northwestern province on Tuesday, a senior official said.

Governor of the West Azarbaijan province Mohammad Mehdi Shahriari added that the projects, worth over 44.65 trillion rials (around $320 million), fall under different categories in the energy, sports and science sectors.

One of the most important projects to be inaugurated by Rouhani is the long-awaited water transfer plan from Silveh Dam.

The project, worth over $4 million, is now ready after eight years to help revive the troubled Urmia Lake, located between East and West Azarbeijan provinces.
