Issues of Cooperation Discussed with Members of OSCE and Geneva Centre for the Democratic Control of Armed Forces
1 / 3

On February 11, the Chair of the RA NA Standing Committee on Defense and Security Andranik Kocharyan and the member of the Committee Kristine Poghosyan met with the members of the OSCE delegation and the Geneva Centre for the Democratic Control of Armed Forces (DCAF).

Welcoming the guests Andranik Kocharyan expressed hope that the cooperation of the history of long lasting work with the organizations would be at the practical plane from now on.

The Committee Chair presented to the delegation the political changes, as well as constitutional amendments occurred in Armenia in recent months, as a result of which our country had turned into parliamentary government. In this context he has noted that there is need to make a number of legislative amendments for effectively implementing the parliamentary oversight function towards the executive body, particularly towards the law enforcement bodies. In this problem Andranik Kocharyan considered important the involvement of the qualified and prepared experts, to which the OSCE and the Geneva Centre for the Democratic Control of Armed Forces could support.

“Being well aware of the problems of the sphere we would like to form such mechanisms of parliamentary oversight in order the law enforcement bodies could control them to function only in the frameworks of law, and any violation of human rights would simply become a memory of the past,” the Committee Chair underlined.

The members of the delegation expressed their support in the experts’ training and localization of the parliamentary oversight mechanisms. Highlighting the expansion and deepening of cooperation with the Committee, the sides expressed readiness to form a working agenda, as well as sign a new Memorandum of Cooperation.
