The resignation is not on the agenda of Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan. According to him, he is not going to leave his post, as the opposition demands.

At an online press conference, Pashinyan commented on the demand of opposition-minded individuals for his stepdown. The politician noted that he needed to solve other problems.

My agenda includes only ensuring the stability and security of Armenia. There is no other issue on the list, he said.

Pashinyan also criticized the storming of government buildings and parliament on the night of November 10. He noted that none of the opposition forces condemned the unrest participants, which he finds strange.

If the opposition does not condemn it, then it should not accuse the government of propaganda of hatred, the prime minister concluded.

NEWS.ru reported earlier that Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan assumed responsibility for the situation in Nagorno-Karabakh at an online press conference.
