Upon Acting Armenian PM Nikol Pashinyan's assignment to Acting Deputy PM Tigran Avinyan, a working group has been established which will be dealing with the problems of the irrigation season. The assignment was given on 22 November at the governmental meeting when the executive approved the draft law 'On Making Amendments and Supplements to RA Water Code.' This draft code has the concepts of 'low water' and 'drought' prescribed in the document, at the same time, specifying the competences of the bodies in announcing a year as a low-water one. 'The objective is clear: from this very moment to take the entire irrigation system under control and to submit a predictable action plan at the beginning of the agriculture season – a roadmap from the beginning to the end of the irrigation season,' Nikol Pashinyan said.
