I consider unacceptable the incident occurred with National Assembly deputy Hayk Khanoumyan the day before. I strongly condemn any act of violence against a person and a citizen. Violence against the NKR National Assembly deputy, political figure gives additional cause of concern.
This incident was a direct blow to the Artsakh Republic statehood, democracy and values shared by us. I am in a constant contact with the law enforcement structures, I am aware of the course of investigation. The process is under my immediate control and I assure that the necessary measures are being taken by law enforcement authorities to determine all the circumstances of the incident.
I urge to refrain from unjustified assessments and commentaries before the final results of the investigation. All details concerning the investigation process will be presented to the public in accordance with the procedures and time frames set by the law.
I also keep in touch with the minister of healthcare, I am regularly informed on the health condition of Mr. Khanumyan and wish him a speedy recovery.
