The Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan held a consultation in the government with the participation of governors.
The PM thanked them for their extensive work during the war and its aftermath. "During this period, the work of the governors has been one of the heaviest, especially in the regions that were directly bordering the hostilities. In particular, Gegharkunik, Syunik regions, as well as other governors who carried out a mission to support our Armed Forces during the hostilities", said the Prime Minister.
He stressed that now we need to start talking about the future: "How we are going to continue living and what goals and future we are going to plan for all of us. This is the most important conversation that should take place today, because, as I said at today's government sitting, the times are really hard, we will have quite difficult processes in the near future. Today we have a problem in terms of finding the missing, exchanging bodies, returning our captive compatriots, and taking care of the needs of our compatriots who have been deprived of apartments, houses and homes".
"The biggest problem we have to solve today is that we must be able to ensure external and internal security and stability. Because this is really a vital need for our country, our state and our people today. In this context, we must be strong, we must be resolute, also in terms of bearing responsibility", Pashinyan said, adding:
"We have to be able to carry that burden, not because we like it, but because the alternative can be devastating, much heavier, much harder and much more painful. We can not allow this. So I hope we all feel this way, because otherwise it will be an escape”.
The situation in the regions as a result of the war was discussed during the meeting.
