Armenia – Nagorno-Karabakh: Prime Minister warns those calling for a “coup” in the country

Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan today denounced those calling for a “coup” in his country, after the military operations launched by Azerbaijan in the Nagorno-Karabakh enclave.

“We must not allow certain individuals, certain forces, to stage a coup in Armenia. There are already calls from various quarters for a coup in Armenia,” he said in his address to the nation.

At the same time, Armenian television reported that hundreds of protesters had gathered outside the government headquarters in Yerevan.

Opposition parties called on their supporters to demonstrate at 18:00 (Greece time).

The opposition has tried several times over the past three years to oust Pashinyan, blaming him for the defeat in the brief war with Azerbaijan in the fall of 2020. Then, the mass protests that followed forced Pashinyan to call early elections. Pashinyan himself became prime minister after the 2018 protests.
