Dear Roberto and Wolf,
Thanks for welcoming me in this mailing list. I hope that sometimes the discussion points coming from another developing country might also be helpful. You are right that Armenia (being in the process of applying for EU membership) in many aspects considered within European countries, but clarifications in this aspect might be helpful and I welcome, Roberto, your suggestion to come to an agreement within ALAC on this geographical issue.
According to different sources Armenia is considered differently, for example according to The 2007 Time Almanac defines Armenia as one of 24 countries within Eastern Europe. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eastern_Europe). 
Usually we say that Armenia is a Eurasia - both in Europe and Asia:)
Thanks again

It is really a joy to have people joining from Armenia.> This reminds me, though, that the issue of the redefinition of the geographic regions is still up in the air. According to the ICANN definition, Armenia is in Asia-Pacific. However, both the European ccTLD organization (CENTR) and the European RIR (RIPE NCC) include Armenia within the geographical area they serve. There is no reason why ALAC should not do the same, but it would be wise to come to an agreement inside ALAC on how to deal with these geographical issues.> Cheers,> Roberto> > > > -----Original Message-----> > From: euro-discuss-bounces at atlarge-lists.icann.org> > [mailto:euro-discuss-bounces at atlarge-lists.icann.org] On> > Behalf Of Wolf Ludwig> > Sent: Monday, 03 March 2008 17:59> > To: Discussion for At-Large Europe; Siranush Vardanyan> > Subject: Re: [EURO-Discuss] Introduction> >> > Dear Siranush,> >> > I am pleased to welcome you on the EURALO-list.
