On April 27 Armenian President Serzh Sarkisian stated that his country has the potential to export electricity to Turkey and from there to Middle East countries. He said that his country had taken steps to normalise relations with Turkey but the latter had undermined the process.

Despite this diverge Armenia’s Energy Ministry is conducting negotiations with its Turkish counterpart. Armenia is ready to cooperate with neighbouring countries on electricity supply despite their different political stands.

Armenia’s Minister for Energy and Natural Resources Armen Movsisian highlighted that Turkey is a big consumer of electricity and has a deficit of it. He also said that Armenia is ready to start exporting electricity to Turkey immediately and the only problem which exists is political.

Some time ago a Turkish company signed an agreement to import Armenian electricity but this has not happened as of yet.
