On January 24 on the evening air of the Second Armenian TV Channel the first
“Press Club” show in 2005 was issued. The cycle is organized by Yerevan Press
Club under a homonymous project, supported by the OSI Network Media Program.
The subject for the discussion of leading media and journalistic associations
of Armenia was the response of press to the statements made by the Assistant
US Secretary of State for Europe and Eurasia Elizabeth Jones during a DVC on
January 13 between Washington, Bratislava, Moscow and Rome. In particular, the
vast public response was caused by the answer of Elizabeth Jones to the question
of Russian “Moscow Times” daily on unrecognized entities, including Mountainous
Karabagh. By prognosis of the “Press Club” participants, the central subject
in Armenian media this week will be the discussion of the report on Mountainous
Karabagh, developed by the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe rapporteur
David Atkinson and to be presented at the PACE session on January 25.
