More than two thousand people rallied in southeastern Armenia on Thursday to voice their strong opposition to plans by the Armenian and Russian governments to jointly develop uranium reserves believed to be located in the mountainous area.

The two governments set up in early 2008a joint venture tasked with conducting exploratory work in the Syunik province bordering Iran and Azerbaijan. It was already explored by Soviet geologists in the 1950-1907s and estimated to contain 30,000 metric tons of uranium ore.
