Political expert: Reports that the Azeri Parliament might adopt a law "On Occupied Territories of Azerbaijan" were just an attempt to see the reaction of the Azeri society, Armenia and the world community

Russian Ambassador to Armenia Vyacheslav Kovalenko did not receive Arman Melikyan, candidate for president of Armenia, former foreign minister of the Nagorno Karabakh Republic.
Melikyan wrote on his Facebook page that despite prior arrangement on the meeting, one of the Ambassador's assistants phoned him earlier in the morning and informed that the meeting was canceled due to Kovalenko's preoccupation. Melikyan wrote that the French Embassy has not responded to his initiative of meetings with foreign diplomats in Armenia either.
Melikyan initiated meetings with foreign diplomats in Armenia after he received just 0.24% of votes at Feb 18 presidential election.
