Armenia’s Ambassador-at-Large Edmon Marukyan Resigns Citing Irreconcilable Differences in Foreign Policy Visions

Edmon Marukyan has been relieved from his position as Ambassador-at-Large of Armenia, as per the decision of Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan. The decision, signed on Monday, comes after Marukyan himself expressed his desire to step down, citing differences in visions on crucial foreign policy matters.


Marukyan, who assumed the role during a challenging period for Armenia and the region, highlighted his commitment and devotion to his duties. However, in a statement shared on X—former Twitter, he revealed that disparities in fundamental foreign policy perspectives with the Prime Minister had led to his decision to resign.


"I have assumed this responsibility in a very difficult period for our State and the region in general and have performed my duties in this mission with high sense of responsibility and devotion. However, the difference in our visions regarding a number of fundamental foreign policy issues in the recent months, makes my further involvement impossible in Armenia’s foreign affairs," Marukyan shared on X.


An Ambassador-at-Large holds a distinguished diplomatic position, serving as a representative of a country and its people on the international stage. Typically, ambassadors-at-large are assigned to operate in multiple countries, regions, or even hold seats in international organizations like the United Nations. They may also be designated to advise and assist the state or government in specific issues.
