Armenia fails to bargain for discounts on Russian gas
Prime Minister Hovik Abrahamyan' latest visit to Moscow was unsuccessful - Armenia's expectations from the visit were not met, the local Haykakan Zhamanak Daily writes.
The Armenian delegation that visited Moscow to attend the meeting of the Eurasian Intergovernmental Council was expected to agree on a lower gas tariff with Russia. The newspaper notes that Armenia sought to achieve revision of the gas tariff in exchange for a partial shift from dollars to rubles in settlements for gas.
"The Armenian government's delegation also hoped to raise investments or a big loan from Russia. However, the delegation failed to agreed on either issue," the newspaper writes.
