At the rally on Saturday he said that Armenia would never make its peace with the agreement, but still have to stick to it. "Otherwise it means war with Turkey and Azerbaijan," he said. Azerbaijan sees itself supported in the conflict by its "brother state" Turkey.

Manukjan said that a new government under his leadership would have to clarify the many open questions of the agreement in favor of Armenia. He wants to coordinate closely with Russia as the most important ally.

For example, the political status of Nagorno-Karabakh has not been clarified. Pashinyan had changed several members of the government. He still refuses to resign. Putin had assured Pashinyan of his support on Wednesday and praised him for his "courage". The agreement was a "very difficult but necessary decision".
