Armenian PM Nikol Pashinyan apologizes to nation for Government’s mistakes

Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan has apologized to the nation for the mistakes of the Government.

“I want to apologize to all of you, all Armenian citizens, to all Armenians of the diaspora, to all people in Artsakh for our mistakes”, - he said during a rally of his supporters in downtown Yerevan. - “I pondered a lot where I went wrong. As a prime minister, as a head of state, I apologize for all the mistakes of the republic’s authorities. But I don’t want to sound regretful. I want it to sound a sign of our resolve that we, Armenian citizens, will never give up in our struggle for free and happy Armenia”.

He admitted that sometimes the choice was between bad and worse. Pashinyan stressed that the nation’s future depends on how the current problems, such as security, foreign and domestic policy challenges, are resolved.

“Strange as it might seem, but a key reason for our mistakes was our popularity as a government. We were loved so much that we tried to do everything too ideally. In many cases, the quest for excellence resulted in idleness”, - he concluded.
