Arminfo. Armenian economy may suffer if the conflict around South
Ossetia continues, Armenian Prime Minister Tigran Sarkisyan told
journalists today.

‘Armenian economy nay suffer only in case if the conflict runs
over very much and Georgia shut downs the roads running via its
territory from Russia to Armenia. In that case we shall be forced
to deliver goods via Iran. This will require extra time and material
expenditure. There is still no such danger – roads are open, and the
railway also implements cargo and passenger traffic’, – Sarkisyan
said and added that at present trade via Batumi ands Poti ports is
implemented without any delay.
