Hraparak: Relations between health minister and deputy PM go tense

Daily Hraparak citing its sources at the Healthcare Ministry writes that relations between minister Arsen Torosyan and vice prime minister  Tigran Avinyan have become tense recently.

The paper says Avinyan is strictly against the anti-smoking bill put into circulation by Torosyan and wants to withdraw it from the agenda send for additional amendments.

Hraparak says Torosyan described Avinyan’s step as anti-state deed serving the interests of cigarette producers. According to the source, he also said that he will raise the issue on the level of the PM and win Avinyan.
