Pashinyan visits flood-hit region

Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan on Saturday, June 8 visited the disaster area in the Lori province, where works are underway to restore roads damaged by floods.

The Prime Minister wrote on social networks that fences were installed on section where the collapsed part of the road was covered with earth, which allowed traffic to be restored.

Rivers flowing through the Tavush and Lori provinces burst their banks early on May 26-27, killing four people, flooding towns and villages located along them and severely damaging local infrastructure. It was the country’s worst flooding in decades.
