Armenian PM Dismisses National Security Chief

Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan on Monday dismissed Armenia’s National Security Service chief Arthur Vanetsyan, in a move that Pashinyan called a “mutual agreement.” 

He still remains the head of Armenia’s National Soccer Federation.

Vanetsyan, who became the National Security Service head after last year's revolution, sent Pashinyan a letter, also published in local media, in which he criticized the prime minister's working methods.

Pashinyan came to power in a peaceful revolution last year after protests against corruption and cronyism.
