Armenia may suffer losses in PACE after insulting Turkish deputy
A member of the Armenian delegation to PACE, Naira Zohrabyan, may be deprived of the right to vote in the Assembly after insulting a member of the Turkish delegation, Margar Yesayan.
Yesayan voted for the resolution on 'Escalation of violence in Nagorno-Karabakh and other occupied territories of Azerbaijan' by MP Robert Walter. After this, Zohrabyan approached him and expressed her views on the matter in an insulting way.
PACE chairman Pedro Agramundt discussed the issue with representatives of Turkey and Armenia yesterday. It is possible that the issue may be submitted to the Disciplinary Commission, after which Zohrabyan may be deprived of the right to vote, Novosti-Armenia reports.
