Draft amendments to Law on International Agreements submitted to Armenian Parliament

24 February 2010 [10:46] - TODAY.AZ
On Feb. 23, the Armenian Parliament discussed draft amendments to the Law on International Agreements.
Armenian Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian, who presented the draft, stated that the document allows one of the parties to withdraw from an international agreement at any stage before the process is completed.

He stressed that the draft amendments provide for the suspension and termination of signing and ratification processes for international agreements.

Nalbandian stated that Point 18 of the Vienna Convention, which provides for this procedure, has not been incorporated in Armenian laws.

“The draft amendments are designed to establish this institute in Armenia,” the Minister said.

Nalbandian evaded a question as to whether the draft amendments have anything in common with the Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan’s statement that the procedure of signing international agreements had to be amended, which would allow Armenia to withdraw from Armenian-Turkish agreements.

As regards the resumption of signing or ratification processes after they have been suspended, the Minister said that the “proposal could be considered.”
