/PanARMENIAN.Net/ "The driving force of the modern society is
knowledge that help people competently defend their rights. Our goal
is to create an environment where everyone can freely exercise their
rights and freedoms without prejudice and discrimination," the
Armenian Prime Minister Tigran Sargsyan told a round table on December
10 timed to the International Human Rights Day. Roundtable
participants stressed that Armenia is one of few countries which
signed all documents regulating the human rights.
"We cannot say that we have achieved great results in human rights
protection, though we try, but positive developments are also
observed. In respect of human rights protection, Armenia is ahead of
Azerbaijan, Georgia and many CIS countries. Certainly, we still have
much to do," Armenia’s Ombudsman Armen Harutyunyan told reporters.
