Ministry of Energy of Armenia thinks that providing gas to the regions of the country where the population is poor and scarce is not beneficial. The Minister of Energy and Natural Resources Armen Movsisian gave a statement about the matter on November 16. At the same time the minister announced that Armenia has one of the most intensive gas infrastructures in the post Soviet space. According to the minister, providing gas is a business which should be economically and ecologically justified. The minister stated that today Russian gas in Armenia is cheaper than market price but it would not be like that forever.
