The gas price will not change for consumers in Armenia, acting Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan has said.
Speaking through Facebook Live, Pashinyan said he talked to Russian president Vladimir Putin on phone twice to discuss the gas price.
“We have reached an agreement at least for the foreseeable future,” he said.
According to the acting PM, there are two chains in the gas supply chain. The first is the supply of gas by Russian Gazprom to Gazprom Armenia. The second stage is the delivery of gas to consumers.
“Gazprom will review the price for Gazprom Armenia, and some rise in the rice is expected,” Pahinyan said, adding that they will return to the issue in the future, if necessary.
“The issue of gas will always be on the negotiating table. We’ll do our best to ensure that the price remains unchanged to consumers,” he noted.
Nikol Pashinyan said no other topics were touched upon during the conversation with Putin.
