ArmInfo. After the meeting with the second President of Armenia, Robert Kocharyan, accused of overthrowing the constitutional order, the Russian Ambassador to Armenia Sergey Kopyrkin was summoned to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. About this on his Facebook page wrote the head of the parliamentary commission on external issues Ruben Rubinyan.
<After the meeting of the Foreign Affairs Committee, at which this meeting was also discussed, I spoke with RA Foreign Minister Zohrab Mnatsakanyan, and he informed me that after the meeting of Kopyrkin- Kocharyan, the Ambassador of the Russian Federation was summoned to the Foreign Ministry. According to Mnatsakanyan, a conversation was held with the ambassador on the topic of non-interference in the internal affairs of Armenia>, Rubinyan wrote.
It should be noted that the ruling force appreciated the Kopyrkin-Kocharyan meeting extremely negatively, calling it impermissible. Meanwhile, Deputy Foreign Minister Grigor Hovhannisyan stated that the Foreign Ministry of Armenia does not have any claims against Russian Ambassador to Armenia Sergey Kopyrkin in connection with his meeting with the second President of Armenia Robert Kocharyan. According to Hovhannisyan, this meeting was entirely within the framework of the protocol, and there was no violation of diplomatic norms.
