YEREVAN. – Past daily of the Republic of Armenia (RA) writes: Yesterday, RA Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan fired ten employees of the Office of the High Commissioner for Diaspora Affairs of the staff of the prime minister.
According to the information, regardless of the reasons for these specific dismissals, in general, the prime minister's patience has run out in connection with the inefficient work of the office. In particular, after the Azerbaijani provocations and aggression in countries with a large number of Armenians during the days of the Armenian-Azerbaijani clashes at the border, the Office of the High Commissioner for Diaspora Affairs was quite passive, and Commissioner Zareh Sinanyan himself seemed to have had gone underground.
According to a government source of the newspaper, Nikol Pashinyan had a rather harsh conversation with Zareh Sinanyan recently, rebuking that he has completely failed the policy pursued with the [Armenian] Diaspora, as currently a fragile situation has been created in homeland-Diaspora relations.
At the end of the conversation, Pashinyan instructed the commissioner to find out in a very short time the general mood of the various circles of the [Armenian] Diaspora, and to personally report the whole situation to him in all detail.
