The nuclear power plant is not operating at the moment, minister of territorial administration and infrastructures Suren Papikyan said at the parliament today.
He reaffirmed the plans of having new nuclear plant and added that negotiations with Russia are underway.
“Today or tomorrow the director of the nuclear plant and my deputy will return from Russia. We have proposals from other countries as well,” the minister said, adding that there are plants with small modular reactive but they all are on water, no country has on land basis yet.
Papikyan said all expressed readiness to send their projects.
“We have registered success with our strategic partner in this sector, we believe that the time-honored option will be more right in this phase,” he noted.
