YEREVAN. – Alexey Miller, Chairman of the Management Committee of Russian natural gas company Gazprom, made a noteworthy statement, according to Zhoghovurd (People) newspaper of the Republic of Armenia (RA).
He stated that Gazprom will lower natural gas prices for Armenia, provided that prices will be lowered in Armenia, too.
“In other words, he made it clear that not them, but the authorities of Armenia are the ‘guilty’ for the high gas prices in Armenia.
“In fact, not only economists claim that these possibilities [i.e. reducing the price of gas or electricity in the country] exist and just a [respective] political will is needed, but Miller himself hints on how to reduce gas prices of the RA citizen,” wrote Zhoghovurd.
