Feliks Tsolakyan: Iran is ready to move Armenia`s radioactive waste  for destruction, but there is a financial problem

ArmInfo. Today, the destruction  of chemical radioactive waste is a priority for Armenia, however, the  republic does not have enough opportunities for this. As the Ministry  of Emergencies of the Republic of Armenia reported to ArmInfo,  Minister of Emergency Situations of Armenia Feliks Tsolakyan stated  this at a meeting with the head of the EU delegation to the Republic  of Armenia Andrea Victorin.

However, he added that the regional location creates additional  problems.

Tsolakyan stated that there is a waste disposal plant in the Iranian  city of Isfahan, and the Iranian side is ready to move the waste for  destruction, but there is a financial problem. He is convinced that  international cooperation can be very useful in this matter.

In her turn, Victorin stated the readiness of the EU to assist the  development of Armenia, which was reflected in the Comprehensive ad  Enhanced Cooperation Agreement between Armenia and the EU, and where  importance is attached to the element of protection of civilians. At  the same time, she expressed her conviction of the need to raise  public awareness on reducing risks and the consequences of natural  disasters.
