The agreement with the EU – a threat to Armenia’s security

Summary of Disinformation

Cooperation with the EU might deprive Armenia the chance to have a nuclear power plant.


The agreement does not exclude in any way that Armenia can build a new nuclear power plant. On the contrary, under the agreement, the European side undertakes to support nuclear security in Armenia. In case of construction of a new nuclear power plant Armenia will enjoy EU support on security issues.

Moreover, Armenia-EU agreement does not mention a deadline for closure of the existing nuclear power plant. It states that the parties will cooperate to carry out the process safely: The cooperation will include the closure and safe decommissioning of Medzamor nuclear power plant and the early adoption of a road map or action plan to that effect, taking into consideration the need for its replacement with new capacity to ensure the energy security of the Republic of
Armenia and conditions for sustainable development.
