During the Seoul Nuclear Summit, Azeri President Ilham Aliev expressed his concerns about an Armenian nuclear power station built in 1976. He cited safety concerns, ( the station is similar to the one that suffered a meltdown at Chernobyl.).

According to Aliev, the station does not meet modern standards and is located in a seismically dangerous area.

Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan responded to Alievís comments by stating that nuclear safety is a priority of Armeniaís government and they take all possible measures to secure nuclear safety and to cooperate with the International Atomic Energy Agency.

Sarkisyan used the remainder of his speaking time to criticize Azerbaijan and Turkey.
