Armenia’s armed forces demanded on Thursday the resignation of Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan and his cabinet.
“The Prime Minister and the government are no longer able to make reasonable decisions in this critical and fatal situation for the Armenian people,” the statement, signed by the Chief of General Staff, his deputies, and more than 30 military commanders, said.
“Inefficient governance of the current authorities and serious mistakes in foreign policy have brought the country to the brink of collapse,” the General Staff added, demanding the resignation of Pashinyan and the government.
The statement comes after the PM dismissed a top Armenian military commander from his position.
The Russia-brokered agreement saw Azerbaijan, which has been in conflict with Armenia over territorial disputes since the 1990s, gain a significant portion of the territory it had claimed throughout the conflict that had erupted in September 2020.
