Statement by the President following the election of Nikol PASHINYAN as Prime Minister of Armenia
“On behalf of the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities of the Council of Europe, I would like to express my congratulations to Nikol PASHINYAN on his election as Prime Minister of Armenia. I hope that the process of reforms of the new government will be focused on ensuring sustainable democratic development in Armenia, with local authorities strengthened to effectively exercise their powers and responsibilities. I am convinced that this will benefit the country as a whole. The Congress stands ready to provide further support to the Government of Armenia in strengthening local democracy in the framework of Armenia’s co-operation with the Council of Europe.”

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
