IAEA closely following issue of Armenia nuclear plant amid threats of attack

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) is aware of media reports referring to a “threat of use of force against a peaceful nuclear installation”, the Agency told Panarmenian  news.

“We follow this matter closely,” IAEA said in response to an request for comment on a statement made by Azerbaijan’s Defense Ministry, whose spokesman hinted that Azerbaijan could strike the Metsamor nuclear plant in Armenia.

In an interview with France 24, Armenian Foreign Minister Zohrab Mnatsakanyan said that Azerbaijan’s threat “is a threat to the broader region, a threat in fact to their own people.”
