At a meeting with representatives of the Armenian community in Munich and neighboring regions in Germany, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan was asked if he has the courage to resign and leave politics altogether after losing Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh) and after so many failures.

Pashinyan responded that there are many political forces that demand him to leave.

"But we can't do that for a simple reason because we received power, a mandate from the people, and if we simply leave, to whom will we leave that mandate?" added the PM, and noted that they had returned the mandate they had received twice and had received it again.

Pashinyan noted that now their task is to focus on having a state and not to pursue the endless vision of the lost homeland.

"Why am I saying and doing all this? Because I am a traitor? Because I am a foreign agent who dreams of giving any land to someone?" Of course, they can think like that. But I am doing this because I realize that if we follow the path, part of which I have taken, if we continue like this, then we will lose our homeland," said Pashinyan.

The aforesaid member of the German Armenian community once again remarked that Pashinyan did not receive a mandate to recognize Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh) as part of Azerbaijan, he was not elected for that.

"If you had gone to the elections and said that you will recognize Artsakh as part of Azerbaijan, how many people would have voted for you?" he asked.
