Pashinyan at an emergency meeting with senior government and law-enforcement officials and lawmakers

YEREVAN — 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.

Amid tensions in the Middle East, Azerbaijani media outlets are actively disseminating misinformation in an attempt to damage the friendly relations between Armenia and Iran.

The Azerbaijani Axar.az website has published false information, claiming that Pashinyan has congratulated Trump on Soleimani killing.

The website refers to Diana Harutyuniyan, a fake Facebook user who is involved in spreading false information.

  1. Why should Nikol Pashinyan congratulate President Trump for making such a stupid demented mistake killing General Qasem Soleimani. Israeli government expressed their concern. They said, they could have taken him out many times but they thought it was not wise to do so. Probably millions of innocent people will DIE..
