Georgia may renew the purchase of natural gas from Russia, but at the moment does not negotiate on this issue. This was announced by the Energy Minister of Georgia Kakha Kaladze, the News-Georgia reported.


"It is important that the sources (of gas supply) were diversified, in the market there was more competition which would affect the prices. If today, especially in the winter, we buy electricity from Russia, why not to purchase, for example, gas? If this is not acceptable for our country and does not affect the rates of gas positively, of course, we would not do it," Kaladze said.

Recall, earlier, Kakha Kaladze stated Georgia might resume purchases of gas from Russia. "The country must not depend only on a single source, that is Azerbaijan," said an expert on energy issues Liana Dzhervalidze in the air of TV channel.

"No matter how good is a single strategic partner, it is very well when the market includes at least three suppliers. This eliminates the formation of a monopoly in the domestic market and promotes competition and creates an interesting market conditions for us," Liana Dzhervalidze added.
