/PanARMENIAN.Net/ Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe
removed from the agenda all issues related to Armenia, Zaruhi
Postanjyan , MPs of Heritage faction told press conference in Yerevan
today.

According to her, PACE adopted such a decision since the deadline for
signing the Armenian-Turkish agreement has approached. "PACE decided to
leave in peace the Armenian authorities and give them the opportunity
to sign the protocols," deputy of the Heritage faction said.

Zaruhi Postanjyan informed, that being not a member of the PACE
Monitoring Committee, she has been twice invited to the meeting of
the monitoring committee. "This year, when I again had to take part
in this meeting, I received a letter in which I was informed that
there would be no need in my participation, since as an opposition
party the ARF Dashnaktsutyun is involved", Zaruhi Postanjyan informed.

According to her, at this meeting, the monitoring committee of PACE
did not discuss any issue related to Armenia. Commission on Human
Rights adopted the draft resolution and the report relating to the
rights of national minorities in Turkey, addressing the rights of
the Armenian population as well. "This project was included in the
agenda of the meeting, but it was also withdrawn," the deputy of the
Heritage faction Zaruhi Postanjyan said.
