The Russian loan, which has been provided to the Armenian Nuclear Power Plant, won't affect the tariff, as we have estimated these risks as well,' said RA Minister for Energy Infrastructures and Natural Resources in his interview with journalists today.

Under the Minister, the discussions on both the electricity and gas tariffs have launched. 'We will accomplish the studies very soon and find out both the matters with losses and tariffs,' he noted.

In reply to the question there are viewpoints that it is possible to reduce the electricity tariff for the whole population, Arthur Grigoryan said the only competent body liable for the reduction and review of tariffs is Public Service Regulatory Committee. 'We have launched the works, which will have the result if the PSRC makes a decision. Sure we will provide our relevant opinion to the committee,' the minister mentioned.
