If necessary, I will definitely interpret the text of my resignation. This is what former Director of the National Security Service Artur Vanetsyan told Factor.am.
When asked whether he realizes how dangerous the formulations in the text of his resignation are in terms of Armenia’s national security, Vanetsyan said the following: “I take informed and planned steps, and if necessary, I will interpret the text of my resignation. I would like to call on everyone to not try to entangle me in games. I have worked with honor and with a high sense of responsibility, and everyone has seen the positive outcomes. As far as the enthusiasm of the former authorities is concerned, I would like to tell them to not get mixed up in my relations with the incumbent authorities,” he said.
As far as the response of Spokesperson of the Prime Minister Vladimir Karapetyan regarding the text of the resignation is concerned, Vanetsyan said: “I wrote the text, and it was edited by my advisor Armen Davtyan.”
Vanetsyan mentioned that he has been on very good terms with the Prime Minister.
When asked if he is going to be involved in politics or not, he said nothing is ruled out. “I only talked about my resignation with my wife, children and parents. I informed them and took that decision, which was very clear. I won’t make any comment on being in politics for the time being. I will be focused on the development of Armenian football for now,” he said.
