During a briefing with reporters after Thursday’s meeting of the Armenian National Assembly inquiry committee for examining the circumstances of the military operations in April 2016, chairman of the committee Andranik Kocharyan presented some details from the committee members' question and answer session with third President Serzh Sargsyan within the framework of the meeting.

News.am asked Sargsyan's office to what extent Kocharyan’s statements are true. In response to the question, Meri Harutyunyan, the head of the office, said as follows: "As a result of the parliamentary inquiry committee chairman’s segmental representation of the views expressed by the third Armenian president at the meeting, they did not fully and accurately reflect the wording made directly by President Sargsyan at the meeting, and therefore, they do not fully represent the whole reality. (…).

According to the third president of Armenia, the meeting was held in a completely constructive atmosphere, but the committee’s final conclusion at the end of the work is important.

As President Sargsyan stated yesterday at the parliament, at the press conference to be held immediately after the end of the [current] state of emergency, he will reflect in detail on all the issues related to this and the April war topic, which will be of interest to the media representatives."
