On Thursday, Armenia’s chief of intelligence, Argisti Kiramian, was relieved of his duties. According to Russian news agency Interfax, Armenian President Armen Sarkisian expelled Kirimian from his post stating his powers.
Kiramian was appointed to the post last June.
Turkish media outlet Deuli Sabah says that Kirmian was fired on the advice of Armenian Prime Minister Nicholas Pashinyan. The decree did not give a reason for his dismissal.
The Kirmian was thrown out when the Armenian army was at war with Azerbaijan. So far more than 300 Armenian soldiers have been killed in the conflict that began on 28 September.
News agency Anadolu Agency says President Armen took the decision in view of the horrific cornification by Azerbaijani forces in the war.
