Armenian Energy Minister stresses continued collaboration with Iran

Armenian Energy Minister Armen Movsisian underlined the need for
continued cooperation between his country and Iran, IRNA reported.

Movsisian, who also heads the Joint Armenia-Iran Cooperation
Commission told reporters that Armenia will continue purchasing gas
from Iran.

Ë?Purchase of gas from Iran takes place in accordance with barter deal
on swap of ArmenianË?s electricity with IranË?s gas,Ë? Movsisian said.

He noted that Armenia gives its electricity to Iran in lieu of
receiving IranË?s gas.

Armenian energy minister said that Iran-Armenia gas pipeline has great
capacities and making full use of the pipeline has been predicted for
emergency times.

Ë?Iran sells every 1,000 cubic meters of gas to Armenia at $370,Ë?
Movsisian added.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
