Hetq and other media outlets aim to divert the public attention from the problems and challenges the country faces by publishing various articles about President Sarkissian, the statement of the president's office reads.
The presidential office's statement particularly says that Sarkissian drew public attention to the real problems and challenges facing the state, describing the current situation in the country as a national crisis.
"Therefore, we once again confirm that the assessment of the moment and the real reasons for the president's resignation are clearly and fully presented in the text of the recent statement," the office said.
Hetq.am wrote that prior to being elected President, Armen Sarkissian had citizenship of the small Caribbean nation of St. Kitts and Nevis. In this regard, Sarkissian had no right to be elected president, since the current legislation doesn't allow this. The National Security Service is now in charge of the publication.
