Armenia considers buying Iranian gas instead of Russian

Acting Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan said that the authorities of the country will discuss the possibility of purchasing gas from Iran.

He said that Armenia will simultaneously hold negotiations with the Russian side to find the most profitable solution.

At present, Armenia is not satisfied with the sharp increase in the price of Russian gas that will cost $ 165 per thousand cubic meters instead of the previous price, $150, starting from 2019.

“The issue of supplying Iranian gas is always on our agenda. We will discuss this issue until we find a particular profitable solution,” TASS quoted Pashinyan as saying.

The Armenian Prime Minister promised to do “everything to protect the interests of the motherland” in this matter.
