Armenia to import Iranian oil products

12:06, 09.04.2012 Region: Armenia, Iran Theme: Economics

Armenia has shown an interest toward importing oil products from Iran, said Jalil Salari, the Managing Director of National Iranian Oil Products Distribution Company.

He noted that importing oil products from Georgia is not economically viable for Armenia, and therefore the latter has commenced importing such products from Iran.  

Salari also informed that in the first phase Iran’s private sector will export oil products to Armenia via motorways, and, subsequently, this will continue via pipelines, RFE/RL informs.          

The Iranian and Armenian energy ministries signed a respective agreement in February. And in line with this accord, Iran will export to Armenia gasoline, and diesel and aviation fuel.
