The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) has voted today to grant “Partner for democracy” status to the Palestinian National Council. Naira Zohrabyan, member of Armenian delegation to PACE, told Panorama.am that the issue has served as an example to raise another vital issue for Armenia.
“This has served as a perfect moment to find out why a similar solution cannot be found for Nagorno-Karabakh,” said the MP.
Mrs. Zohrabyan has added that the issue is logical, since the Council of Europe doesn’t discuss the recognition of Palestine but the MPs have voted to grant “Partner for democracy” status to the Palestinian National Council.
“Member of our delegation Armen Rustamyan raised the issue saying if there is such a precedent why the same cannot be applied for Nagorno-Karabakh. And in stead of forming some useless committees, such a solution could be timely,” said Mrs. Zohrabyan.
To conclude, the Armenian MP has signified the attendance of Nagorno-Karabakh parliamentarians to PACE. “I think this is a serious precedent and that the Armenian delegation must put forth efforts to achieve the goal.”
