/PanARMENIAN.Net/ On November 16, Heritage faction MP Zaruhi Postanjyan
attended PACE Monitoring Committee's session together with Armenian
delegation.

Armenian MP introduced a draft resolution envisaging rejection
of candidacies proposed by states which are in monitoring or
post-monitoring phase.

Such initiative received support by delegates representing 5 countries
"I was the only Armenian delegate to undersign the document. And
statements that the resolution may undermine Armenia's EU process are
groundless since chairmanship there is based on rotation principle,"
Postanjyan told today a news conference in Yerevan.

Under the resolution, the representative of a monitored country can
become a PACE chairperson in case of complying with all commitments
in the sphere of human rights.

In that regard, Postanjyan finds the document additional stimulus
for Armenia.
