Armenian Minister of Health Arsen Torosyan has introduced a bill banning smoking from all enclosed public spaces in the country.

If passed, the bill would ban smoking within five meters of the entrances to medical establishments and schools/universities.

Smoking within the confines of community playgrounds for children would also be prohibited.

The ban would also cover national and local government offices, most army installations,  bus stop stalls, and all public transportation conveyances.
