Speaker of Parliament Alen Simonyan immediately reacted to former President Levon Ter-Petrosyan’s open letter calling for his resignation over the spitting incident involving a Diaspora-Armenian.

In a statement, Simonyan said he was surprised that the former Armenian leader would demand his resignation.

“I was expecting everything, but for the first President of Armenia Levon Ter-Petrosyan to demand my resignation, that was really surprising,” Simonyan said.

“…the historian President ought to well know the unforgivable mistakes and what price the leaders of countries who’ve made unforgivable mistakes pay,” he added.

Simonyan also invited the ex-president to parliament to discuss “the biggest damages inflicted upon the state’s image during history”. Ter-Petrosyan called Simonyan’s actions during the street altercation as the “biggest damage” to the state’s image.
