At the end of the meeting the RA NA President Hovik Abrahamyan took a note in the PACE Book of Honorable Guests.

Within the framework of the visit the RA NA President Hovik Abrahamyan met with the President of the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) Dean Spielmann.

The NA President has noted that Armenia highly assesses the role of the Court in the protection of human rights of the Europeans being resided in 47 member countries of the Council of Europe. He has documented with joy that the meeting takes place within the framework of the RA chairmanship at the CoE Committee of Ministers. In Hovik Abrahamyan’s word, the chairmanship of Armenia will continue the efforts of the previous chairmanships of the Council of Europe aimed at strengthening of the use of the European Convention of Human Rights. The effective use of Convention at national level is a necessary precondition for guaranteeing all citizens’ rights and freedoms of member states of the Council of Europe. “The member countries of the Council of Europe along with their differences are united with common values. And the European Court is the pillar of the protection of those values,” Hovik Abrahamyan said. The NA President has noted that Armenia will continue to support all the reforms, which are fixed in the declarations of Interlaken and Brighton. With this respect the elaboration of the Protocol 15 of the European Convention of Human Rights was considered an important step, which was opened for signature on June 24, and Armenia joined it among the first. Mr Abrahamyan also touched upon the works regarding Armenia. Speaking about the Safarov case being within the procedure of the European Court Hovik Abrahamyan has noted that it is not only the problem of Armenia, but also of the whole international community. “Armenia expects that the European Court will touch upon the mentioned issue merely from the legal point of view and will give an adequate legal assessment, which will be of importance for decisive prevention of such inadmissible deeds,” the NA President noted.

The Chairman of the European Court of Human Rights highlighted the visit of the President of the RA National Assembly and noted with joy that in future he would visit Armenia for the first time to take part in the international conference "The European Standards on the Rule of Law and the Scope of Discretion of Powers in the Member States of the Council of Europe", to be held in the National Assembly. Dean Spielmann highly assessed the four Armenian lawyers’ work in the European Court and expressed hope that new young lawyers will be sent to the ECHR, as the Court due to its overloading needs additional lawyers. According to Spielmann, it is important and effective with respect to the exchange of experience. The ECHR President also touched upon the works regarding Armenia that they have complications of different degrees, but they are not of big number. Referring to Ramil Safarov’s case, Dean Spielmann noted that the European Court has experience of such sensitive cases and the assessment of the ECHR will be unequivocally legal.

At the meeting other issues were also discussed.
