RIA Novosti

YEREVAN, March 23 (RIA Novosti, Gamlet Matevosyan) - The Armenian National Assembly has adopted the law On Counter Terrorism in the third final reading.

"This is a model law for CIS countries," said secretary of the Dashnaktsutyun faction Grair Karapetyan.

According to him, the law outlines the legal and organizational bases of counter terrorism and regulates relevant relations.

The law implies the establishment of a coordination body, the operative counter terrorism headquarters which will be supervised by the Armenian president.

The republican executive national security body, the Interior Ministry and the Armenian Armed Forces handle counter terrorism issues. Other executive bodies also have anti-terrorist authorities.

The law prohibits the distribution of information hampering counter terrorism activities and exposing the life and health of Armenian citizens to danger.
