CIS Parliamentary Assembly to Review Armenian Genocide Recognition

YEREVAN (Combined Sources)–The permanent defense and security commission of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) Parliamentary Assembly decided on Thursday to review recognition of the Armenian genocide during its 2005 session.

The proposal came from the Russian Federation’s Prosecutor General’s office–and was approved by session participants.

Parliamentary representatives of CIS member countries–who were meeting in Yerevan–Armenia–also reviewed a number of model legislative programs to combat crime and trading of illegal substances–as well as military-technical cooperation.

Absent from the session were representatives of Georgia–Azerbaijan–Turkmen’stan–and Uzbekistan.
