YEREVAN. – At the meeting of the Euronest Parliamentary Assembly the Armenian delegates thwarted attempts of Azerbaijani delegation to raise the issue of closing Armenian NPP, head of the delegation Gayane Abrahamyan told reporters.
The arguments provided by the Armenian delegation were quite reasonable and convinced members of other delegations.
“With great difficulty, we managed to stop another Azerbaijani initiative over the closure of the Metsamor NPP. The Azerbaijani side emphasized that the EU should make every effort to raise the issue of closing the NPP as soon as possible. Immediately before the vote that I took the floor and explained why this proposal was unacceptable. We also presented an excerpt from the IAEA report, which clearly emphasizes that the Metsamor NPP has made significant progress in terms of safety over the past three years,” she added.
