/PanARMENIAN.Net/ "Meetings should make sense. Empty and fruitless
meetings are avail and we cannot pretend as if we are holding
talks," Tigran Torosian, the RA NA Speaker and head of the Armenian
parliamentary delegation to the CoE, said when commenting on the
refusal of the Armenian delegation to participate in the sitting
of the PACE subcommittee on Nagorno Karabakh. In his opinion, it’s
a proper response to the activities of the Azeri parliamentarians
who used the absence of the Armenian delegation over the funeral
of PM Andranik Margaryan for an attempt to push forth their own
proposals. "The Azeri delegation misled people by proposing some
wordings on fulfillment of their commitments," Torosian said adding
that such conduct is not only disrespect for moral rules but also
unavailability to any dialogue or cooperation.

Tigran Torosian said that Subcommittee head, Lord Russell Johnston,
was supposed to be informed of the refusal to take part in the
meeting. "Let them clarify why his secretary was not informed of
the refusal," he said adding he is not going to comment on Azeri
deputy Samed Seyidov’s statement on "Armenia’s political weakness",
RFE/RL reports.
