Read it in Russian

The Georgian International Gas Corporation (GIGC) has started importing natural gas from Azerbaijan. As the companys press office reports, the Azerbaijani party has already started increasing gas pressure in the pipeline connecting Georgia with Azerbaijan. “Tonight, approximately at 21:00 Moscow time the gas will arrive in Georgia,” said the companys spokesperson.

According to the spokesperson, it is difficult to say yet, what amount of gas will be imported. Besides, he reminded that “the GIGC President David Ingorokva together with Fuel and Energy Minister Nikolai Gilauri are having talks with the government of the Islamic Republic of Iran on buying gas.” “The Georgian government representatives have been in Tehran for two days on the instructions of the Georgian president,” said the spokesman. Meanwhile, as Georgian National Bank President Roman Gotsiridze said, “the country has enough financial resources to buy the natural fuel.” “We will have no problems in buying gas,” he added.

The gas supplies to Georgia and Armenia was cut off on Sunday because of explosions on gas pipelines North Caucasus-Transcaucasus and Mozdok-Tbilisi.
