YEREVAN. – Hraparak daily of Armenia writes: A visit of US Congress members to Armenia was supposed to take place at the end of June. We had written that they were planning meetings with both the President of the National Assembly [(NA)] and the leaders of the three NA factions (...).
However, June 30 passed, whereas the Congress members never arrived in Armenia. It turns out that the visit of the Congress members has been postponed. NA press speaker Tsovinar Khachatryan told us that the cause was Covid. Moreover, at first it was decided that they would come with five people, then the makeup of the delegation increased—becoming to 17, but in the end they informed that they could not come to Armenia at the moment.
"They informed us that the visit is postponed due to the illness of the aircraft crew. But they have not specified who are infected with Covid—possibly the pilot as well," said the NA press speaker. Also, she noted that the Congress members had petitioned to the NA President with a request for a meeting on June 30, which, in fact, did not take place.
