Armenia has invited Russia to sign a new agreement regarding the Rome Statute, Armenian Deputy Foreign Minister Paruyr Hovhannisyan said at a at the meeting of the standing committees of the parliament on the state budget project for the next year, APA reports.
Speaking about the Rome Statute ratified in Armenia last month, Hovannisyan noted that there were problems regarding the Rome Statute between Washington and Yerevan as well, but the bilateral agreement made it possible to solve them:
"Said agreement was proposed by the United States, it was negotiated and signed. Armenia has invited Russia to sign an agreement similar to the agreement signed with U.S.," Hovhannisyan noted.
According to Hovhannisyan, Russia has not expressed any official position regarding this issue yet: "I think the process continues."
Note that the ratification process of the Rome Statute was stopped in 2004.
On October 3 of this year, the country's parliament ratified the Rome Statute, which provided the basis for Putin's arrest in Armenia. 60 people voted in favor and 22 people voted against.
Moscow reacted extremely negatively to the decision of the official Yerevan.
