YEREVAN. – The name of Armenian capital city Yerevan’s former Mayor,
Russian Gazprom Company’s present-day Deputy Director, Karen
Karapetyan – who is in Armenia these days and is holding political
meetings – likewise is circulated among the candidates for the PM’s post
of the country, Hraparak daily reports.

`We learned from a Moscow source close to [Russia’s] Gazprombank that
the matter of Karen Karapetyan being appointed PM is linked to the
Armenian-Russian talks with respect to the price of [natural] gas. The
authorized circles of the negotiations have imposed a condition that
Karapetyan would return to Armenia and be appointed to the PM’s
position only if he contributes to a reduction in the price of the
Russian gas.

To note, [Armenia’s] Energy and Natural Resources Minister Armen
Movsisyan had pledged that, `we will have the best gas price in the
CIS; ours will be the lowest [price].’

The price of Russian gas currently being delivered to Armenia
constitutes $180/1,000 cubic meters, whereas Belarus pays the lowest
price for the Russian [natural] gas,’ Hraparak writes.
