Yerevan, 14 June:
The US State Department's fifth annual Trafficking in Persons Report will help Armenia implement its future programmes in this sphere. Serious tasks have been set, but Armenia is unhappy about some points of the report and will raise its objections soon, Armenia's Prosecutor-General Agvan Ovsepyan told a press conference on 14 June.

The report said in particular that Armenia had serious problems with human trafficking. It said that Armenia had been placed on a watch list this year because of its failure to show evidence of increasing efforts to combat trafficking over the past year.

Many sectors of the government do not officially recognize the problem and the government failed to disseminate or implement any elements of its national action plan, the report said.
