YEREVAN, March 1. /ARKA/. Armenian President Armen Sarkissian and Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan met on Monday, Sarkissian’s press service reported.
“Since the president is not well, the head of the government visited him to inquire about his health,” the press service said.
The press service noted that the President and the Prime Minister also touched upon the internal political situation.
“Other information disseminated is absolutely false and is an attempt to further exacerbate an already tense situation,” the press service said.
The press service again urged all to refrain from disseminating provocative and false information, at the same time stressing that the president of the republic is guided exclusively by the Constitution, as well as national interests, and acts within the framework of his constitutional powers.
According to social networks, Pashinyan demanded that Sarkissian sign a decree on the dismissal of chief of the general staff of the armed forces Onik Gasparyan.
Armen Sarkissian refused last Saturday to sign the draft decree. Pashinyan’s decree came after Gasparyan and more than 40 other top army brass issued a statement accusing the prime minister of misrule and demanding that he and his government step down. -0-
