Armen Sargsyan called on all political forces and authorities to act strictly within the constitution
Armenian President Armen Sargsyan said he is seeking ways to reduce tension in the country and peaceful settlement of the situation, and called on all political forces and authorities to act strictly within the framework of the constitution.
“I call on everyone – state and law enforcement agencies, political forces, all citizens – to show restraint and common sense and act strictly within the framework of the constitution. Every unconsidered word or action increases tension and deepens the crisis. Reaffirming the role of the President as a balancing body, I will take urgent steps to reduce tensions and seek a peaceful resolution to the situation”, – Sarkisian said in a statement released by his press service.
He urged fellow citizens to exercise restraint.
“Today, when we have not yet overcome the consequences of the war unleashed against Artsakh, when we have thousands of victims and wounded, when there are serious regional threats, we are, unfortunately, again in an extremely explosive situation, fraught with unpredictable consequences for our state and statehood”, – he added.
