Vardan Oskanyan, Minister of Exterior of Armenia, reportedly said today Americans are almost eager to build a new nuclear plant in Armenia. Trend reports with reference to Mediamaz agency, in his interview published today in Armenian Aykakan Zhamanak Oskanyan said there was a time when they (Americans) didnt even want to hear of it. The USA is concerned in this issue, the US government discusses it and, I suggest, we have a chance to replace our old nuclear plant with a new one, - Armenian diplomat said.

"As far as I know, the USA are going to solve regional problems through constructing this new plant and thus are seriously thinking it over", - Oskanyan added.
