YEREVAN. – Armenia’s acting Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan did not tell US National Security Adviser John Bolton his “secret of success.”
Bolton jokingly informed about the aforesaid at Thursday’s press conference in Armenia’s capital city of Yerevan, and with the results of his meeting with Pashinyan.
The US National Security Adviser said he and the acting PM had discussed the snap parliamentary election, which is expected to be conducted in Armenia in December, and noted that some matters will be put off because of this voting.
Bolton recorded that there is a broad view among the Armenian public that acting PM Pashinyan will get a “strong mandate” as a result of this election. In his words, if these expectations are met, Pashinyan will get an opportunity to take some decisive steps.
The US National Security Adviser added that, within the framework of his visit to Armenia, he had met with analysts too, and this talk had reconfirmed that the cornerstone for Armenian society is the resolution of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.
