Sarkissian, Pashinyan meet in Yerevan

Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan has paid a visit to President Armen Sarkissian who is still recovering after his treatment from Covid-19 in Yerevan, Sarkissian's office said Monday, March 1.

Sarkissian and Pashinyan "naturally" discussed the situation in the country, the President's office said in a statement.

"All other information spreading online is absolutely false and can potentially further escalate the situation," the statement said, amid reports that the President has allegedly been forced to change his mind about his decision to send Pashinyan's draft decree on the dismissal of the country's top military brass back to the government.

Armenia is facing a serious political crisis after the country's top military brass demanded Pashinyan's resignation. The PM, claimed, however, that he had already dismissed the chief of the Army General Staff.
