Governor denies Armenia surrendering village to Azerbaijan

PanARMENIAN.Net - Outgoing governor of Armenia's Ararat province Razmik Tevonyan has denied media reports alleging that the country is going to surrender the village of Tigranashen to Azerbaijan.

"As it is known, I have submitted my resignation to Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan. Different hypotheses for my resignation were spreading in the media and on social media platforms, one of which claimed "a document on surrendering Tigranashen has been signed," paving the way for my resignation," Tevonyan said in a statement.

Tevonyan said no such issue has ever been or will ever be discussed. The official said such reports are not true and called for "refraining from false and baseless speculations."
