Secretary General Jagland to Armenian President Sarkissian: Letter and spirit of Constitution should be respected

In their phone conversation today, the Secretary General of the Council of Europe, Thorbjorn Jagland, and the President of Armenia, Mr Armen Sarkissian, discussed the current situation in Armenia. Secretary General Jagland was informed about the latest events in Yerevan. He underlined that after having assisted Armenia during the recent constitutional reform, the Council of Europe was very attentive to the first steps of the implementation of the Constitution, which letter and spirit should be respected. Jagland confirmed the Organisation’s readiness to further assist Armenia on its way towards a society based on our major values of Human rights, Rule of Law and Democracy.

Dear Visitor,

Welcome to the website of the Council of Europe Office in Yerevan.

The Office represents the Secretary General of the Organisation in Armenia. It closely co-operates with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and other national authorities supporting the implementation of statutory obligations to the Council of Europe by Armenia. The Office also co-ordinates and implements a number of Projects and Programmes supporting legislative and institutional reforms in Armenia.

A new 2015-2018 Council of Europe Action Plan for Armenia was adopted by the Council of Europe Committee of Ministers on 15 September 2015. It constitutes the strategic framework for the co-operation of the Organisation with the Armenian authorities with a view to promote current reforms in the country. The four main directions of action under the document are: protecting and promoting human rights, ensuring justice, combatting threats to the rule of law, as well as promoting democratic governance.

As part of our continued outreach, the Office is also committed to working closely with NGOs, the media, and the public at large.

I hope that the information and resources available on this website will be helpful to address your questions related to the activities of our Office and the Council of Europe in Armenia.

Thank you.

Natalia Voutova

Head of the Council of Europe Office in Yerevan
