On January 24, the key rapporteur on PACE Local and Regional Authorities Armen Gevorgyan met with the President of the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities of the Council of Europe Leendert Verbeek and the Secretary General Mathieu Mori.

During the meeting the discussion of the local and regional issues and problems to be held in the CoE Fourth Summit to be held in the near future was highlighted. The interlocutors also documented that that inadmissible problems connected with local democracy were recorded in a number of CoE member states, which contradict the European Charter of Local Self-Government. An agreement was reached that the facts and circumstances on local democracy recorded in the CoE member states by the Congress should become a serious matter for the CoE all bodies.
