Armenia May Cancel International Treaties Prior To Enactment

Posted by Info on 16/02/2010

The government of Armenia has approved a bill “On Making Additions in the Law ‘On International Treaties'”, assuming Armenia’s possibility to cancel international treaties prior they come into legal force.

According to the amendments, a signatory may, at any moment prior a signed treaty comes into its legal force, refuse from taking part in it, having notified about its intention in advance. It was stated at the sitting of the government that this provision corresponds to Article 18 of the Viennese Convention on International Treaties.

In December 2009, President of Armenia Serzh Sargsyan said, when touching on the situation with the Armenian-Turkish Protocols: “Armenia is ready to properly execute its international obligations – to ratify the signed Armenian-Turkish Protocols. We expect the same from Turkey. But if Turkey protracts ratification of the Protocols, then, Armenia will immediately take the opportunities based on the international law.”
