April 12, RA President Serzh Sargsyan will leave for U.S. at the
invitation of U.S. President Brack Obama to participate in the Global
Nuclear Security Summit to be held in Washington, D.C., April 12-13,
the RA Presidential Press Secretary Armen Arzumanyan informed NEWS.am.

A letter addressed to Serzh Sargsyan, says that, taking into account
Armenia's commitment to the objectives of fighting against nuclear
security and struggle against terrorism, the Armenian leader has been
invited to participate in the Global Nuclear Security Summit to be held
at Walter E. Washington Convention Center, April 12-13. The goals of
the Nuclear Security Summit are to come to a common understanding
of the threat posed by nuclear terrorism, to agree to effective
measures to secure nuclear material, and to prevent nuclear smuggling
and terrorism.

As people responsible for nuclear materials, the world leaders must
assume responsibility for reducing their availability where possible
and to apply the highest standards of safe storage of the nuclear
waste, the U.S. leader's letter says.
