Armenia ready to discuss below-$189 gas price with Iran: Energy Minister

PanARMENIAN.Net - Iranian gas supplies will cost Armenia much more than Russia-provided gas, with Tehran seeking to sell gas at international prices, Energy Minister said.

As Armen Movsisyan stated in parliament, “though ready to provide necessary amounts of gas, Iran offers a price of $400 per 1000 cubic meters against Russia-offered $189, with the deal not beneficial to Armenia.” “Should Iran agree to lower the price to $100, I’m ready to start negotiations immediately,” the Armenian official said.

In conclusion, the minister noted that construction of Meghri hydropower plant may launch in 2014, with project work already completed.
