France, Strasbourg, Jan. 26 / Trend , A.Maharramli/
The Armenian delegation's powers will not be frozen, Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) Chairman Luis Maria de Puig said at a news conference on Jan. 26.
"I don't think Armenia will be deprived of its right to vote in the session," the chairman said.
The PACE co-chairs agreed to form a working group with the Armenian government to assess the situation with political prisoners in Armenia. They also reached an agreement to assess Armenian legislation.
"The co-chairs will submit the results of their monitoring to the PACE Monitoring Committee that analyzed the situation in Armenia after the developments in March," the chairman reported. "The committee needs time to assess the situation and work over proposals. I think the issue will be examined at the PACE session in April."
