TBILISI, September 22 (Itar-Tass) — Georgia has suspended Russian gas transit to Armenia via the North-South gas mains, Georgian Oil and Gas Corporation said on Thursday.
According to the corporation, gas transit was stopped from 11:00 a.m. local time and will be resumed in four or five days. The move was done as part of the project that provides for the construction of a railway line to by-pass the capital city of Tbilisi. The corporation had informed the Armenian side about it beforehand.
Temporary suspension of gas supplies will create no problems for Armenia, since the country has a gas storage facility holding enough gas to meet the country’s demand for almost two months, Georgian Oil and Gas Corporation said.
