Armenian parliament to discuss recognition of Karabakh on May 16

An Armenian parliamentary commission on foreign affairs will debate a draft law recognizing the self-proclaimed Nagorno-Karabakh Republic’s independence, the head of the commission Artak Zakaryan said. "There will be a session on Monday and the commission’s findings will be submitted to parliament," Sputnik cited Zakaryan as saying. After submission, parliamentary regulations allow for the draft bill to be added to the Armenian National Assembly’s four-day agenda. The regulation allows lawmakers to either add the bill on the agenda, reject, or postpone it.
