YEREVAN, MARCH 19, ARMENPRESS. Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan has said he himself is the harshest critic of his own government.

Pashinyan was asked by a reporter at a news conference today what he would criticize the most in the incumbent government if he were opposition.

“There is no restriction of the freedom of speech or critique in Armenia in order for me to imagine myself opposition and criticize the incumbent government. I can reassure that I myself am the biggest and harshest critic of the government in Armenia. Be certain, there is no substantiated criticism for me to hear from someone else and then myself. I hear all critique firstly from myself,” he said.
