ArmInfo.Former head of the NSS of Armenia Arthur Vanetsyan confirmed that the text on Facebook, which appeared immediately after the resignation, he wrote not alone, but he was helped. This was stated in a conversation with reporters by the press secretary of the Prime Minister of Armenia Vladimir Karapetyan on September 19 after a government meeting.
Earlier, on September 16, Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan during a press conference announced that he was sending Vanetsyan to resign as head of the NSS. Following this, Vanetsyan himself announced his dismissal. According to him, state building has its own logic: spontaneous decisions, sweeping actions, the absence of differences between the primary and secondary - this is not the way that leads to the achievement of goals. Vanetsyan said in a statement.
Commenting on the statement of Vanetsyan, Vladimir Karapetyan expressed doubt about authorship of the text. "It is necessary to find out who wrote the text attributed to Arthur Vanetsyan. We hope that its authors are not PR offices of corrupt officials who, by misunderstanding, escaped criminal liability. We urge General Vanetsyan not to lose the dignity of the officer to which he refers."
"I consider it naive to think that the text was not written by me. I wrote the text, but my assistant Armen Davtyan edited it," Vanetsyan remotely answered him.
Today, answering a question about what Vladimir Karapetyan had in mind, expressing doubts about Vanetsyan's authorship and whether he believes that the former head of the NSS went over to the side of the previous government, the prime minister's spokesman said: "I urge you to recall the context of that day when the prime minister, showing a very frugal attitude towards the words, spoke about the situation between him and his subordinate, hinting at a mutual agreement, and after that it was a surprise to come across a similar statement by Vanetsyan, both for the prime minister and for his representatives the team ".
