According to the secretariat of the government’s information dissemination council, the bill of the agreement was introduced to the parliament and approved by both the parliament and the Expediency Council in September.

The single article law, comprising a prelude and 19 sub-articles, allows the Islamic Republic government to extradite criminals with the republic of Armenia.
