Pashinyan: Armenia is a leader in the region and one of the eight  leading countries in the world in network freedom

ArmInfo.Armenia is among the 3 countries that recorded the greatest progress in 2019 in terms of network freedom. This was reported by the Prime Minister of Armenia  Nikol Pashinyan on his Facebook page, referring to the report of the  human rights organization Freedom House.

"Freedom House international human rights organization published the  annual " Network Freedom " report according to which Armenia recorded  unprecedented progress and divided the 8th line of the rating with  France (among 65 countries of the global rating on the level of  Internet freedom in 2019. Ed. note), the Armenian Prime Minister  wrote.

The head of government recalls that in 2017 Armenia was included in  the list of countries with "partial freedom" in the ranking of the  human rights organization Freedom House. Already in 2018, as a result  of the non-violent, velvet revolution, Armenia was among the  countries with free access to the network, taking 13th place in the  rating, losing in the region of Georgia. "We are leading in the  region by the end of this year and we are one of the eight leading  countries in the world in network freedom," Pashinyan said.

To recall, on November 5, the non-governmental organization Freedom  House published a report on Internet freedom. According to the  organization's report, Armenia improved its performance and entered  the list of countries with free Internet. The authors of the report  evaluated countries according to three indicators: the absence of  barriers to Internet access, accessibility of content and respect for  user rights.  Armenia scored 76 points out of 100 possible: the more  points, the better the indicator in the country. Thus, Armenia has  become a leader in Internet freedom in Asia.
