Marat Terterov: Armenia’s long term security will be better served by strengthening economic security, rather than defining national security on the basis of the Tsarist Russian catch-cry “armiya i flot”
Armenian and Russian Presidents Vladimir Putin and Serzh Sargsyan have agreed on prices for natural gas supplies to Yerevan, RIA Novosti says.
"I think we have come to an agreement about pricing for gas supplies. The price should be based on actual market price of gas taking into account the regional tariffs for the Armenian economy to maintain its efficient position," Serzh Sargsyan told reporters after talks with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin.
Armenian media reported in early July that Russian gas giant Gazprom would raise prices for gas supplies to Armenia from the current $180 per 1,000 cubic meters to $280 from October 2012 and to $320 from 2013. Armenian, RIA Novosti says.
