Yerevan, June 18 - Neftegaz.RU. Armenia hopes to obtain cheaper gas from Russia, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan said in an interview with RT on June 15.
«We understand that this (the current price) is a exclusive price for Armenia. But we would like to have more exclusive tariffs. We will discuss these issues, and I hope that we will have success,» Pashinyan said.
Commenting on gas tariffs inside the country, Pashinyan said «this is the internal problem of Armenia.»
«Armenia receives cheap gas from Russia on the border, but the price doubles from the border to the consumers' homes,» he said.
Distribution networks across Armenia are owned by Gazprom. The tariff for gas at the border is $150 per 1,000 cubic meters, but consumers pay a much higher price for the gas.
