Georgia will not transfer Iranian gas via Armenia
The Georgian officials have no information about a contract for Iranian gas import via Armenia, says The Trend citing Georgia's deputy energy minister Mariam Valishvili.

Earlier this week an Iranian news agency informed that the country’s Oil Minister Bijan Namdar Zanganeh announced signing an agreement on the export of Iranian gas to Georgia via Armenia with a Georgian company. Mariam Valishvili explained that the government has not concluded any contract with Iranian gas suppliers and has not received any contract for submission from private companies either.

“Theoretically, private companies can sign such a contract,” she said. “The Georgian legislation does not forbid it. However, in this case, these contracts must be submitted to the Georgian government for registration. But the government did not obtain such contracts.”

“Moreover, the Georgian gas pipeline infrastructure is controlled by the state,” she added. “Private companies and the Georgian government must sign a contract on gas supply within the country. Such contracts were not signed either.”

Georgian deputy minister also mentioned that Iran is a major supplier of gas to the world markets and the country is interested in Iranian gas purchases in the future.
