ArmInfo.The Armenian delegation managed to disrupt the next anti-Armenian initiative of the Azerbaijani delegation (the requirement to close the nuclear power plant in Metsamor) in Euronest. This was reported by the RA NA Press Service.
On December 8, meetings of four commissions of the Euronest Parliamentary Assembly on political, energy, social and economic issues took place. The head of the delegation Gayane Abrahamyan delivered a speech, not only presenting the biased approaches of Azerbaijan in the above issue, but also clearly arguing the strategic importance of energy independence. Professional opinions of IAEA experts were also voiced that significant progress has been recorded in improving the safety of the nuclear power plant. In addition, the importance of the provisions outlined in the framework of the Agreement on Comprehensive and Enhanced Partnership of the RA-EU in the field of energy security was emphasized. During the meeting of the Committee on Politics, Human Rights and Democracy, one of the main achievements of the Armenian delegation was the adoption of all its recommendations for the report. It was also important for Armenia to accept the proposal of the Armenian delegation on the spread of xenophobia in the education system, which is very closely connected with the anti-Armenian policy of Azerbaijan. On December 10, the delegation of the National Assembly will take part in the meetings of the Bureau of the Euronest Parliamentary Assembly.
