The Armenian capital has seen clashes and arrests with demonstrators, demanding the resignation of Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, blockading the Foreign Ministry building.
Anti-government unrest reignited in Armenia a month ago over the Nagorno-Karabakh issue, with the opposition accusing Pashinyan of trying to give the disputed region away to Azerbaijan.
Several thousand people gathered in central Yerevan on Tuesday morning and moved toward the Foreign Ministry, chanting: “Pashinyan is a traitor.”
The protesters then broke through police cordons and blocked the building’s entrances. Activists have accused the ministry of failing to defend the interests of the Armenian people.
Several opposition lawmakers arrived at the Foreign Ministry and managed to make it inside after minor scuffles, while the crowd remained outside.
