Addressing the parliament on Wednesday, April 5, the Prime Minister said the final number of deaths will reach around or a little more than 4000.

Pashinyan also noted that 201 bodies or remains are waiting to be identified through DNA analysis at the moment.

“There are more than 100 bodies that have been identified, but their relatives refuse to accept that fact for some reason. Some of our compatriots believe that their relatives are alive,” Pashinyan told lawmakers.

“Some families don’t trust the results of DNA analysis [in ] and arrange a DNA examination abroad themselves.”

On Pashinyan’s suggestion, the National Assembly paid tribute to the memory of the victims of the 44-day war with a moment of silence.
