The Armenian Government’s view is not enough to assess the condition of the Armenian nuclear power plant, President of Armenia Serzh Sargsyan stated at a summer session of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) on June 22.
“Two weeks ago IAEA OSART mission arrived in Armenia and conducted a safety test at Armenian Nuclear Power Plant (NPP). We did considerable work to ensure safety of the Armenian nuclear power plant. The Armenian NPP’s operation does not pose great risks to the people in our region. Super-profits from other energy resources which ramp up military spendings pose a threat to the region. Armenia’s Government will go on pursing its policy developing nuclear energy under supervision of international agencies,” Sargsyan concluded.
