Yezras Nersisyan: I consider the protest actions normal, but the form of expression is unacceptable

Primate of the Armenian Diocese of Russia and New Nakhichevan Archbishop Yezras Nersisyan in response to journalists’ questions from Armenia at the monastery of the Armenian Apostolic Church in Moscow responded to recent protests demanding the resignation of His Holiness Catholicos of All Armenians Garegin II.

“I consider the protest actions normal, but the form of expression is unacceptable.”

To the quaestion whether the Catholicos must resign, he asnwered: “The resignation of the His Holiness does not happen in this manner. The Armenian patriarch serves the people. The Church’s mission is to serve the national interest and to support the Armenian statehood,” said Archbishop Yezras Nersisyan.
