The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) has placed into circulation a resolution stating the violations of the rights of sexual minorities and transgender people in the South Caucasus. This is what head of the Bright Armenia faction of the National Assembly Edmon Marukyan told journalists on 16 April.
He blamed journalists for providing wide coverage of the topic of the transgender. “The resolution features a major part devoted to Armenia, and Armenia will now face problems with this.”
The MP said that if the resolution is adopted, Armenia will be among the condemned countries. He also stressed that it is very bad that the resolution puts Armenia and Azerbaijan on equal footing.
