ArmInfo. Armenian Prime  Minister Nikol Pashinyan submitted to the President of Armenia Armen  Sarkissian a proposal to relieve the Head of the RA Police Valery  Osipyan from his post. The department of public relations and mass  media of the apparatus of the President of Armenia confirmed this  information to ArmInfo.

At the same time, according to the source, the corresponding decree  of the president has not yet been signed. As soon as the decision is  made, the decree will be published and posted on the official website  of the head of state, the administration stressed.

It should be noted that over the past two days, following resignation  of the head of the National Security Service Artur Vanetsyan rumors  about the possibility of resignations of Police Chief Valery Osipyan  and RA Minister of Defense David Tonoyan have been actively  circulating.

However, the latter on September 18, in an interview with reporters  in the National Assembly of the Republic of Armenia, denied rumors  about his possible resignation. According to him, there was no such  discussion with the Prime Minister. In addition, as noted by Tonoyan,  there was no discussion on the topic of resignations at the meeting  of the Security Council. The head of the Ministry of Defense noted  that he and Nikol Pashinyan cannot have disagreements. The work is in  sync.

The head of the defense department did not comment on Vanetsyan's  resignation, noting that this was an "individual decision". At the  same time, Tonoyan said that the resignation of senior officials is  not expected in the Ministry of Defense. When asked whether the  resignation of the head of the NSS and the expected resignation of  the head of the police Valery Osipyan (the information had been  leaked to the media on the eve of it) pose threat to the interests of  Armenia's national security, Tonoyan replied: "I don't think so, the  system works."

To recall, Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan announced the resignation  of the head of the National Security Service Artur Vanetsyan during a  press conference in Vanadzor. Soon Vanetsyan himself confirmed this  fact, noting in his statement that "the spontaneity of decisions,  randomness of actions, the absence of priorities between the primary  and secondary issues are not the path that leads to the achievement  of goals."
