Armenia sets Council of Europe Chairmanship Priorities
From 16 May to 13 November Armenia is chairing for the first time the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe.

         - strengthening European standards on human rights and on the rule of law;
┬Ě        - fostering democratic societies; and
         - reinforcing the role of the Council of Europe in the European architecture.
