Azerbaijan has applied to PACE Bureau to impose sanctions on Armenia. 

APA reports that on June 22 the PACE Executive Committee held a meeting in Strasbourg. Among other issues, the agenda includes a draft resolution on "Imposing sanctions against Armenia" proposed by member of the Azerbaijani delegation to the PACE Elkhan Suleymanov.

The final decision on the draft resolution will be taken on June 27.
