Armenia’s PM says state of emergency to probably be extended


The Armenian authorities realize that they cannot extend state of emergency every time, Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan said at a briefing today.

“Apparently, if everything goes on in a way it does, we will extend the state of emergency right now. We will try to improve the legislation about state of emergency in a way to be able to have tools to conduct anti-epidemiological policy after lifting the state of emergency regime,” the PM said.
