Chairman of State Committee for Nuclear Security Regulation at the Armenian government Ashot Martirosyan believes the penetration of the smuggled highly enriched uranium from Armenia into Georgia to be impossible.

In March 2010, Georgian special service officers cut short an attempt of selling highly enriched uranium in Georgia made by two citizens of Armenia. According to the Georgian side, "in April, the smugglers managed to put 18 grams of enriched uranium on a train going from Yerevan to Tbilisi".

"In Armenia, all the nuclear materials from nuclear fuel for atomic power stations to the smallest volumes for companies - micrograms, are strictly controlled by State Committee and IAEA. I cannot say how this uranium got to Georgia; there is no enriched uranium in Armenia and there has never been", - Martirosyan stated on Tuesday during a press-conference.
