Armenian protest leader to meet with Prime Minister Sargsyan

Armenian opposition figure Nikol Pashinyan, leading ongoing protests in the country, said on Saturday that he would meet with Armenian Prime Minister Serzh Sargsyan on Sunday morning to discuss the latter's resignation, Sputnik reported.

Since April 13, the Armenian capital has been hit by a series of protests against the appointment of ex-President Sargsyan as the country’s prime minister.

The protests turned violent on Monday and on the following the protesters announced the beginning of a "velvet revolution" in Armenia after Sargsyan was appointed as the head of the government.

"My meeting will be held tomorrow at 10:00 [6:00 GMT] at the Marriott hotel. The negotiations will be devoted to Sargsyan's resignation and the handover of power without any upheaval," Pashinyan said in a video address released on his Facebook page.
