YEREVAN: Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pishinyan, under intense public pressure over a shocking defeat in Azerbaijan, has announced that he will resign in April.
According to the international news agency, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pishinyan has announced his resignation in April this year, but he will continue in his post until the parliamentary elections are held.
The Armenian prime minister faced intense public pressure to surrender after a six-month war with Azerbaijan in October last year, amid strong criticism from opposition parties and calls for new elections.
The conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan over the disputed territory of Nagorno-Karabakh has been going on for more than six months. Globally, Nagorno-Karabakh is recognized as the territory of Azerbaijan, which was occupied by Armenia. ۔
The bloody war between the two countries ended with the intervention of Russia and under the humanitarian peace agreement not only Armenia surrendered but also returned many territories to Azerbaijan. More than 2,000 people were killed and hundreds wounded in the fighting.
