    comma or hyphen?

    Is there any other suggestion for punctuation? "The Armenian President handed the RA high state decoration, the Medal of Mkhitar Gosh, to Gaspar Karapetyan for his outstanding pro-Armenian activities."
    Do I need hyphens instead and is there any rule?

    Re: comma or hyphen?

    The commas are fine.

    You could also use dashes — like these — but definitely not hyphens.

    Re: comma or hyphen?

    By saying hyphens I meant dashes.
    "President Sargsyan congratulated President Putin on the occasion of Russia's public holiday - Independence Day." Can I use comma instead?
