World A- A A+

Iran urged all parties in Armenia to exercise restraint and avoid any violent actions on Thursday after the Armenian military called for the resignation of Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, Eurasia Diary reports citing Anadolu Agency.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh said that Iran is closely monitoring the latest developments in the country.

The Armenian armed forces chief Onik Gasparyan, along with other senior commanders, released a statement Thursday that called for Pashinyan to step down.

Pashinyan blasted demand as a coup attempt and urged his supporters to take to the streets to resist.

Turkey strongly condemned the attempted coup in Armenia.

“We condemn all military coups or coup attempts, no matter where they take place across the world,” Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said at a news conference in Hungary.
