Swiss Ambassador to Armenia Lukas Gasser: Switzerland will try to contribute to a peaceful settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict without questioning the established formats such as the OSCE Minsk process
On September 2, Armenian students started an action of protest on the central entrance stairs of the Yerevan State University against the tuition fee rise. The action started at 9 am.
The protesters were distributing leaflets urging other students to join the strike.
The police told the students to come down the stairs and continue their action in front of the University. After a short argument the students agreed to come down the stairs but made the law- enforcers explain why they were disturbing the protest action. The police said that the number of the protesters was increasing and preventing other students and lecturers from entering the building.
