Acing PM issues statement over cancellation of meeting with Nikol Pashinyan


Armenia's Acting Prime Minister Karen Karapetyan issued a statement over on cancellation of the meeting with the opposition leader, MP Nikol Pashinyan, APA reports citing news.am.

 

The statement notes: "Dear citizens, as you know, a meeting between Nikol Pashinyan and me was to be held tomorrow to discuss the situation and look for solutions. I inform you that the meeting will not take place, as Nikol Pashinyan unilaterally put forward new conditions, in particular about the format, agenda and coverage of the meeting. He proposed a list of participants from our side, and also stated that he would discuss exclusively his agenda. This does not mean negotiation or dialogue, but the presentation of one's own agenda and point of view, up to the definition of the participants in the meeting. Having some experience in negotiating, I've never heard of such a format. Concerned about the situation, as the head of the executive power, having obligations to ensure a normal pace of life, I appeal to the President of Armenia to organize a meeting in his chosen format with the participation of parliamentary and extra-parliamentary political forces to discuss the internal political situation and determine possible ways out of it, early parliamentary elections"
