Iran calls for self-restraint from all parties in Armenia

PanARMENIAN.Net - Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh has called on all parties in Armenia to show self-restraint and avoid violence, Iran Front Page reports.

In comments on Thursday, February 25, Khatibzadeh said the Islamic Republic is closely monitoring the developments in the country.

Armenia is facing a serious political crisis after the country's top military brass demanded Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan's resignation. The PM, however, claims he had already dismissed the chief of the Army General Staff. The parliamentary opposition has already weighed in on the matter, urging against bloodshed and calling for a peaceful transition of power.
