During yesterday’s Parliamentary Assembly of the Organization of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation, the delegation of Armenia left the room, according to the website of the Armenian National Assembly.
The delegation says they weren’t invited to a discussion, to which everyone else had been, and they had to wait in the hall for over an hour.
“At the beginning of the opening of the Fiftieth Jubilee Meeting of the Assembly, when the members of the delegations were waiting in the Session Hall for about an hour, it became clear that on the initiative of the PABSEC Secretary General and the Head of the Ukrainian delegation the heads of all delegations stood apart and discussed certain issue. Only the Head of the Delegation of the National Assembly of the Republic of Armenia were not invited to that discussion,” the statement reads.
The delegation called this incident “an insult not only towards Armenian delegation, but also to all delegations and the whole structure”.
It is also said that during this discussion a change was made in the deceleration regarding the conflicts existing in the region.
“An amendment was made on the conflicts existing in the region in the declaration which completely contradicts the complex principle of the international law – non-enforcement of the force and force threat, territorial integrity and law of the peoples’ free self-determination”.
The 50th session of the General Assembly of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation (PABSEC) takes place in the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine on November 28-30 under the chairmanship of Lyudmyla Denisova, the Head of Permanent Delegation in PABSEC.
