Catholicos Of Cilicia Aram I Calls On PM Pashinyan To Resign.

Today, His Holiness Aram I, Catholicos of Cilicia, called on Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan to resign.

“Our expectation is that the conciliatory transitional government to be formed under the leadership of the new Prime Minister to be elected will give priority to the organization of early elections to the National Assembly,” said Aram I.

His post reads as follows:

“Dear Armenian people,

In the presence of the Religious and Political Assemblies of the National Central Board of the Catholicosate of the Great House of Cilicia, we address the following patriarchal message to the children of our people:

The Armenian people are in deep alarm. The mentality of being defeated has left him in uncertainty and despair. Indeed, we lost most of Artsakh, built and flourishing with the blood of our children, despite the brave resistance of our heroic army against the Turkish-Azerbaijani army. We also lost our national dignity and pride. We had many victims, captives, wounded and refugees. There is not an Armenian in the world who does not suffer the great loss of the nation. The people demand a comprehensive and clear account of this terrible tragedy.

We are facing uncertainty. The children of our people in Armenia, Artsakh and the Diaspora express their just protest and revolt against a document of the agreement signed between Armenia and Azerbaijan, which, along with Artsakh, also endangers the territorial integrity, security and independence of Armenia. In fact, Armenia is like a lifeless ship plunged into a terrible storm.

In these crucial conditions, the unity of our people is more than imperative. We must stay away from approaches and actions that provoke polarization, create divisions, and sow the spirit of intolerance. The internal unity and collective will of our people must become a guarantee for tomorrow’s strong Armenia and Artsakh. The collective will of our people, the common and supreme interests of our people and homeland must remain captive to all kinds of remarks and become the determinants of our thoughts, decisions and actions.

Driven by these principles and commitment, about two years ago the Prime Minister of the Republic of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan assumed the helm of power in Armenia. In the current crisis, we call on Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, based on the same principles and commitment, to decide to resign from the post of Prime Minister, giving the National Assembly an opportunity to respect the constitutional order and process and elect a new Prime Minister. Our expectation is that the conciliatory transitional government to be formed under the leadership of the new Prime Minister to be elected will give priority to the organization of early elections to the National Assembly.

We pray to the Most High God to receive our martyrs in His heavenly kingdom, to heal the wounded as soon as possible, to return the captives and comfort the bereaved families, and to keep our nation and homeland away from all evils and evils.
