Iran Urges Armenians to Avoid Violence

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iran’s Foreign Ministry called on the Armenian parties to exercise restraint and stay away from violence amid the disputes over the military’s demand for the prime minster to resign.

In a statement on Thursday, Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Saeed Khatibzadeh said Iran is closely monitoring the developments in neighboring Armenia.

He also called on all Armenian sides to show self-restraint and avoid violence.

The Armenian Army issued a statement on Thursday, demanding Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan’s resignation.

The prime minister then accused top military officers of attempting a coup, prompting a rally of thousands of supporters.

The army’s demand came in response to the prime minister’s handling of Armenia’s conflict with the Republic of Azerbaijan over the Nagorno-Karabakh region, which ended in November 2020.
