Improvemen’s to New PACE Report on Karabagh

YEREVAN (Yerkir)–The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe’s (PACE) most recent report on the Mountainous Karabagh has not changed greatly from its September 14 report–according to the Armenian delegation head to that body.

Presented by newly appointed rapporteur to the confilict David Atkinson–the report includes revised wording that serves the Armenian side–and was reviewed by PACE’s November 17 session in Paris.

The head of PACE’s Armenian delegation Tigran Torosian–revealed that the clause calling for the International Court of Justice Court to rule whether Armenia has violated Azerbaijan’s territorial integrity has been altogether removed.

The draft resolution also urges the Azeri government to take measures to discuss the region’s status with the Armenian and Azeri communities of Karabagh.

Torosian also said that while the draft resolution is improved–it does not contain all proposals put forth by the Armenian delegation.
