Armenia’s acting Prime Minister is “optimistic” about the Russian gas price supplied to Armenia.
Speaking through Facebook Live following his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow, Pashinyan said “no final decision has been made on the gas price.”
“Nevertheless, I’m optimistic and I hope that we can achieve the intended result, or, at least, avoid the negative scenario," Pashinyan said.
He added that the issue of gas remains "very sensitive for bilateral relations."
The acting PM said they had a brief discussion on the situation in the Collective Security treaty Organization (CSTO).
“Our position is that we need institutional solutions here,” Nikol Pashinyan said.
He emphasized the importance of working out mechanisms that will allow to avoid similar debates in the future.
The Member states are yet to reach a consensus on the appointment of the organization's Secretary General. The position remains vacant after Armenia recalled its representative Yuri Khachaturov. The latter is charged with overthrowing the constitutional order during March 1 unrest that followed the presidential elections in 2018.
