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
Armenia's Ambassador to UK Armen Sargsyan may become the fourth president of the country, a Yerevan-based Haykakan Zhamanak Daily writes.
Head of the President's Staff Vigen Sargsyan has submitted a proposal to the Commission for Constitutional Reform to reduce the current 10-year of permanent residence in the country required from the candidates for president. The paper writes that the amendment will enable nominating Ambassador Armen Sargsyan as candidate for president at the next presidential election in Armenia.
"Although Sargsyan has been living abroad for long years, his latest appointment as Ambassador of Armenia to UK can be considered as residence in the country, because the Embassy is considered the territory of the country it represents in line with international conventions. It has been rumored in the government circles recently that Sargsyan will be appointed the prime minister and then will be nominated for the position of the president of Armenia from the Republican Party," the paper writes.
