Turkey’s top official condemns coup attempt in Armenia

Turkey’s presidential spokesman on Thursday rejected and condemned the coup attempt in Armenia, AzVision.az reports.

“We reject and condemn the coup attempt in Armenia. Coups have always interrupted democratic processes and created chaos,” Ibrahim Kalin tweeted.

Kalin called for a speedy normalization in Armenia.

The Armenian military on Thursday called for the resignation of Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, according to local media.

Onik Gasparyan, the chief of General Staff of the Armenian army, along with other senior commanders released a statement calling for Pashinyan to step down.

Pashinyan blasted the military's call as a coup attempt and urged his supporters to take to the streets to resist.

Pashinyan later announced the dismissal of the chief of General Staff on Facebook.
