Armenia can restore gas pipelines from Azerbaijan after resolving problems between the two countries, Armenian Deputy Territorial Administration and Infrastructure Minister Hakob Vardanyan said at the Silk Road forum in Tbilisi.
Vardanyan said that in the Soviet Union, Armenia received gas from Azerbaijan. Three large gas pipelines from Azerbaijan served this purpose, he said.
“And now we can restore these gas pipelines if there are no unresolved political issues between our countries. We can also be a transit country for gas transportation from Azerbaijan to Europe, the same applies to electricity,” Sputnik Armenia quoted the deputy minister as saying.
Yerevan, he said, is ready to restore all communications.
“This could change the energy diversification of the region,” the deputy minister said.
