Swiss Ambassador to Armenia Lukas Gasser: Switzerland will try to contribute to a peaceful settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict without questioning the established formats such as the OSCE Minsk process

The decision to exclude me from the Armenian delegation to PACE comes from President Serzh Sargsyan rather than Speaker of the Parliament Hovik Abrahamyan, MP from Heritage Party Zaruhi Postanjyan told journalists on Monday.
She said that she has already informed PACE of the decision. "Mr. Abrahamyan has not yet started the official procedure but the PACE Bureau and Regulation Commission are already considering my case and will officially react as soon as he does," Postanjyan said.
Abrahamyan's decision followed the question Postanjyan asked Sargsyan at PACE. She asked the President how he was going to pay the 70mln EUR he had reportedly lost in a casino in Europe. Postanjyan hopes that PACE will defend her.
