The PM firstly reminded that Gazprom Armenia CJSC has submitted an application on the gas price to the Public Services Regulatory Commission. And the Commission will discuss the issue. “Our political consultations on this topic continue. Unfortunately, I cannot say anything concrete right now. But we should record that under the conditions of collapse of energy markets, decline in oil prices, we could and can expect from Armenia’s strategic partner Russia that now it’s not the best time to talk about the gas price increase, especially taking into account the coronavirus crisis and its social problems”, he said.
The Armenian PM assured that they will continue working with their partners.
