Central Asian state leaders have inaugurated the Central Asia South Asia (CASA-1000) transmission line near Dushanbe in Tajikistan to link the four nations and to promote regional stability, security and prosperity. These countries are Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, Afghanistan and Pakistan.
The CASA-1000 project comprises the development, financing, construction, ownership and operation of a 750-kilometer high voltage direct current (DC) transmission system between Tajikistan and Pakistan via Afghanistan.
