“The situation in the region is worrying,” Pashinyan said in a Facebook post.

“Our position remains unchanged. Armenia will not be drawn into anti-Iranian actions, Armenia will not be drawn into anti-American actions.

“And it is our hope and our call on friendly Iran and the United States to immediately begin negotiations to prevent further escalation”.
