YEREVAN (Noyan Tapan)–The repository of nuclear wastes at the Armenian Nuclear Power Plant is the safest type of repository presently known.
EPAC Chairwoman Aida Iskoyan said this is the conclusion of experts presented to the Armenian Ministry of Nature Protection.
According to the conclusion–the repository is not subterranean; it is of the dry type–and the state of wastes in it can be easily observed.
According to Aida Iskoyan–the claims expressed by some neighboring countries about the alleged nuclear pollution of the environment have no grounds.
"Such a prestigious organization as IAAE is monitoring the Nuclear Power Plant safety. It provides open information about this matter," she Iskoyan.
