Armenian people did the Revolution – PM Pashinyan
YEREVAN, SEPTEMBER 23, ARMENPRESS. Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan says the attempts to ascribe the revolution to other people are disrespect to the Armenian people. He is confident the Armenian people did the revolution, Pashinyan told reporters in Los Angeles.
“The truth is the following: I personally did one thing – I said I think that we have a situation that is problematic, I personally take a step for this situation, those who have steps, can do that. And it turned out that many people have steps to take. It has been created and formed by the people. The people of Armenia carried out the revolution. Yes, I did my step, but if the others didn’t do that, nothing would happen”, the PM said, adding that the authors of conspiracy theory circulate versions according to which the revolution was planned somewhere, the place where usually the famous revolutions are being planned.
Pashinyan urged all sides to calm down because those who were in Armenia and not in their offices, know who did the revolution and how. The PM said the revolution took place in a live broadcast, and this story has not just started, it has a long history and has been created, formed and taken place before everybody’s eyes. “There was a time when this story was followed by 5 people, and then by 50, 500 and later by all Armenians. This revolution has been done by the Armenian people. And those who want to ascribe the copyright of the Armenian people to others, to foreigners, just show disrespect to the Armenian people. They thought in this way in the past, the result of their rule has been so, they thought that the Armenian people do not have an identity, a will and goals, that they are manageable people. They were used to that the people should not decide who must become an MP in the elections. No, this will not happen anymore. The Armenian people have statehood, identity and dignity, and those who want to mix Soros or other things, just want to insult the dignity of the Armenian people”, Pashinyan said.
Armenian PM Nikol Pashinyan arrived in the United States on a working visit.
