Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan took to social media to hit back at the authors of a report claiming he congratulated US President Donald Trump on the killing of top Iranian general Qasem Soleimani.
“A fake Armenian-language account spreads the false news that I congratulated US President Donald Trump on launching a “successful” anti-Iranian operation. The report quickly appears in Azerbaijani press and becomes a trending news,” PM Pashinyan said in a Facebook post.
“The news then appears in Iranian press and becomes a source of anti-Armenian inspiration for certain forces,” he continued.
“This is the case when the false “freedom” of speech poses a threat to our national security. The authors of the news and their motives need to be clarified,” the Prime Minister concluded.
