American ambassador to Tbilisi warned the Georgian government against cooperating with Gazprom

62
The American ambassador to Georgia, Jan Kelly, said today that Georgia should not allow another state to put pressure on it, using the country's dependence on energy imports, reports Look With reference to the newspaper "Kviris Palette".




“Georgia should not receive damage and should not allow any particular state to get a lever of influence on Georgian energy security,” Kelly told the newspaper.

“The Georgian government is trying to diversify sources (energy supplies),” he said. “When there is public and opposition concern, it is important that the government ensure transparency of negotiations with Gazprom or Sokar (the Azerbaijani gas supplier to Georgia).”

At the same time, he noted that “as long as Georgia’s volumes received by Georgia cannot cause damage (the country's energy security)”.

Earlier, Georgian Deputy Prime Minister Kakha Kaladze reported that Tbilisi is negotiating with Gazprom to increase supplies "for commercial needs, not for the population."

There is enough Azerbaijani gas to supply the population. However, Azerbaijanis cannot increase supplies for commercial needs.

“Negotiations are underway, talking about increasing transit (from Russia to Armenia, for which Georgia receives its share). We want to get more and additionally provide commercial structures with the opportunity to receive gas through Georgia, ”said Kaladze.

The dialogue was recently continued in Milan. “At the meeting, consideration was continued of the issues of the transit of Russian gas through Georgia and its commercial supplies,” says a release from Gazprom.

According to the newspaper, Georgia’s dependence on energy imports is 75%.

        Only where, if not Gazprom, is cheaper! Moreover, the infrastructure is established, paid! The ambassador did not say? They probably want to push them their LNG!

      It would be nice if the Russian ambassador made a statement that "Georgia should not receive damage and should not give an opportunity to any particular state influence decision making on energy security "and explain that the country's dependence on imports is determined by the market and infrastructure, as well as the lack of its own product.
      Mattresses got it - the United States is not a party to the negotiations, but with manic persistence they are doing everything that can harm Russia.

      but to society and opposition. Apparently, the government is not only "jumpers" as in Ukraine. Before the Maidan, "society" was also "worried". It is not a good sign, apparently the Georgians are "not doing the right thing" in the economy, since they want to buy Russian gas. belay

    And Gazprom himself began to get something, or rather its steering ... Even in the Moscow region, there are non-gasified settlements, what can we say about the rest of Russia. It seems that Gazprom is not sitting ethnic Germans, but the real Nazis. However, probably it is so, since they do not think about the Slavs ...

    I am surprised how everyone pounced on Georgia and our outskirts, they say, mattresses are blowing to the tune.
    Yes, as if our situation is different! Putin may be the leader of the forces of light, but so far he has been unable to do anything with the internal enemies who are running the show. They sabotage and ignore the president's messages and direct instructions, deliberately provoke popular discontent, etc. And the main thing is that the legislation is combed in such a way that even outright internal enemies of Russia cannot do anything! By the way, the "repressions" of 1937-39 reviled and perverted most of all the new liberals and Jews, who were mostly mowed down in those years. And now it is quite obvious what the cause, the betrayal. Is it now someone who will be indignant or will be against if any Svanidze, Shenderovich, Makarevich, Bulk, Gaidar, Kasyanov, Ulyukayev, Gref and other parasites are sent to the Arctic to develop? Yes, the whole country will rejoice, except for 1% of these same geeks. Even then, the simple and honest people understood that they were imprisoning criminals for the cause.
