Opposition Leader: Armenia's Safety at Risk Under Pashinyan’s Rule as Security Concerns Loom

In the wake of the recent Azerbaijani attacks that claimed the lives of four Armenian soldiers in Syunik Province, opposition leader Hayk Mamijanyan says that the security and safety of Armenia cannot be guaranteed under Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan's leadership.



Mamijanyan, the leader of the opposition “I Have Honor” faction in the Armenian parliament, expressed his concerns during a press conference outside the Yerevan Criminal Court. This statement followed the deadly incident where Azerbaijani fire took the lives of four Armenian soldiers and left another wounded.


"In a country facing such grave security challenges, they [the authorities] are engaged in fabricating charges against political prisoners instead of dealing with those issues," Mamijanyan remarked, pointing to what he perceives as misplaced priorities.


The opposition leader went on to emphasize that, in his view, as long as Prime Minister Pashinyan remains in power, Armenia cannot be considered safe and secure. He accused the Armenian authorities of detaining their critics and called for the release of jailed opposition activist Narek Malyan and opposition politician Armen Ashotyan.


Mamijanyan's statements reflect growing discontent within the opposition, raising questions about the government's ability to address pressing security challenges effectively. The tragic incident in Syunik Province has intensified the debate over the nation's safety and the political course set by the current leadership.
