ArmInfo. There is no tension, and there will not be any between Armenia and Artsakh. On August 9, Armenian Deputy Prime Minister Tigran Avinyan expressed similar confidence in a conversation with reporters.
Commenting on the statement made in Stepanakert by Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan that Armenia should guarantee the free will of the people of Artsakh and guarantee the formation of a legitimate government, Avinyan noted that Armenia has an obligation to ensure the holding of free, fair and democratic elections in Artsakh. "And we are fully prepared to put all this into practice," the Deputy Prime Minister emphasized.
When asked whether the election situation in the NKR could get out of control, taking into account the calls for the resignation of Bako Sahakyan, voiced during the pan-Armenian rally on August 5 in Stepanakert, the deputy head of the Cabinet of Ministers of Armenia answered that the citizens of Armenia and Artsakh should freely express their will. "On that day, different opinions were voiced, but meeting itself was generally very successful and positive, and the prime minister's speech was perceived," Tigran Avinyan believes.
