Also on Monday, Armenian Foreign Minister Zohrab Mnatsakanyan resigned from his post, the ministry’s spokeswoman wrote on Facebook.
Mnatsakanyan had held the position since May 2018.
The government of Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan has come under pressure with thousands of demonstrators protesting last week to demand he resign over a ceasefire deal that secured territorial gains for Azerbaijan in Nagorno-Karabakh.
On Monday, Pashinyan appealed for calm.
“Today I clearly stated that violence or the provoking of violence (especially armed violence) cannot in any way be a means of action for the government,” Pashinyan said on Facebook.
