The National Assembly (NA) of Armenia on Tuesday did not put on the agenda of its plenary session the draft law submitted by the HayaKve civil initiative, by which it is proposed to criminalize the recognition of Nagorno-Karabakh as part of Azerbaijan.

The NA Standing Committee on State and Legal Affairs on Monday had not approved this law proposal to make a respective addition to the Criminal Code of Armenia.

The leader of the ruling majority faction in the NA, Hayk Konjoryan, announced that the faction will vote against this bill because the aforesaid committee had voted against it. He added that this draft law will not solve any problem, but will create many other problems.

And as a result of the voting, this bill was rejected—with 26 votes in favor, 57 against and 0 abstentions—and therefore was not put on the NA agenda.
