Armenian premier to discuss electricity in Tbilisi

By Tengiz Pachkoria


Armenian Prime Minister Andranik Margaryan will arrive in Tbilisi on
Sunday evening on a two-day visit. He will discuss “smaller charges
on the Armenian electricity supplied to Georgia,” Georgian Energy
Minister Nika Gilauri told the press.

“Armenian electricity charges for Georgia are higher than prices on
Russian electricity,” the minister said. “We will also discuss
parallel functioning of the Georgian and Armenian energy systems, and
Georgia’s affiliation to the Armenia-Iran energy grid. We would like
to deliver electricity to Iran via Armenia in summer and receive
Iranian electricity via Armenia in winter.”

The Armenian delegation led by Margaryan will attend a session of the
Armenian-Georgian intergovernmental commission for economic
cooperation on Monday, July 26. Georgian President Mikhail
Saakashvili will receive Margaryan.
