Is it necessary to amend the jurisdictional rules of Republic of Armenia with the traditional “forum non conveniens” rule ?

Legal practitioners from civil law countries, especially those from post-soviet area (hereinafter referred as “Developing civil law systems” or “DCL systems”) find the doctrine of “forum non convenience” (hereinafter referred as “FNC”) very strange.
