YEREVAN. – Hraparak (Square) newspaper has learned that the diplomatic passport of the captain of the Armenian national football squad, Armenian football fans’ idol Henrikh Mkhitaryan, was revoked on Tuesday, according to the newspaper.
“Senior officials, MPs, and those to whom are issued by the decision of the RA [Republic of Armenia] Prime Minister, have such a passport; that is, they are those persons who are the ‘ambassadors’ of the Armenian people and state outside—those who raise the standing of the state. And Heno [Henrikh Mkhitaryan] definitely is among them.
“Yesterday, we could not get a [respective] comment from the MFA. Those in charge are in the US—they have left for the UN summit [in New York],” Hraparak wrote.
