YEREVAN, May 17. /TASS/. Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan has called on all protesters to stop the blocking of streets and other civil disobedience actions, he said on Facebook live on Thursday.
"I’m calling on everyone to stop all civil disobedience actions today at 15:00 (14:00 Moscow time). I understand that everyone has the right to such actions, but it was appropriate when there was no people’s government in Armenia. Everything is different now. You must create groups that will present your problems to corresponding agencies," Pashinyan noted, adding that "Those who do not want to sabotage the work of the new government should immediately respond to its appeal."
"As for demands for Yerevan Mayor Taron Margaryan’s resignation, the government will study this issue and will deliver a corresponding statement," the Armenian PM stressed, adding that "all problems of the citizens will be gradually solved."
"There should be no blocked streets in Armenia from now on," the republic’s prime minister said.
Since May 16, Yerevan has been a place of civil disobedience actions demanding to address a variety of current social problems.
