YEREVAN. – After Thursday’s Cabinet session of the government of Armenia, Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan walked out of the building and met with a group of fallen soldiers’ relatives who were protesting outside the government building.
He noted that the payment of benefits along the lines of the 1,000 Drams foundation shall cover all the way back to the 1990s.
“But for that, workplaces need to be registered,” he added. “And people have responded. We have more than 65,000 new registered workplaces this year. Payments of the 1,000-dram foundations are also increasing.”
The PM, however, asked the demonstrators to allow the government to resolve this matter over the course of time.
“I, as Prime Minister, am ashamed that we are discussing such matter here because this matter should have been resolved long ago,” Pashinyan noted, in particular. “I apologize that this matter isn’t resolved [yet]. But we [the incumbent Armenian government] have resolved nine year’s matter within a year.”
