Premier’s resignation was aimed at suspending Armenia’s membership to CC

Political analyst Andrias Ghukasyan says the prime minister’s resignation was accepted in order to suspend the signing of an agreement ratifying Armenia’s accession to the Customs Union.

“Today it is a necessity for Armenia and Serzh Sargsyan was forced to take the step. He subdued to external pressures, especially that by Syria, and had to suspend the process,” said Mr Ghukasyan.

On April 3, Prime Minister Tigran Sargsyan announced his resignation which was accepted by Serzh Sargsyan at the meeting of the ruling Republican Party’s executive body later in the same day.
