DEPARTMENT ON INFORMATION AND PUBLICATIONS REORGANIZED INTO PUBLICATIONS AGENCY

On January 17 at a session of the Government of Armenia the decision of reorganizing the Department of Information and Publications at the RA Government and its transfer to the authority of the RA Ministry of Culture, Youth Issues and Sports as a publications agency was made. The agency is to be headed by Edward Militonian, previously in charge of the Department of Information and Publications.

Since the foundation of the Department in early 1997 the journalistic community kept questioning its necessity, as the mandate of the Department in the media area has never been clearly defined.
