PanARMENIAN.Net – The General Staff of the Armenian Army issued a fresh statement on Thursday, Febriary 25, maintaining that their previous statement demanding Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan’s resignation was not pressured by any person or power.

The statement “is the clear conviction and position of the generals and officers, with a single goal of serving the salvation of the Homeland at this crucial moment. We confirm our position once again,” the General Staff said.

The parliamentary opposition has already weighed in on the matter, urging against bloodshed and calling for a peaceful transition of power.
