Armenian president resigns

Armenian President Armen Sarkissian announced on Sunday he is resigning his post as the head of state.

In a statement published on his website, Sarkissian explained that "gossip about" the president is "diverting public attention from the most important issues" in the country.

Over the past year, Sarkissian contested Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan over a number of issues, including the defense ministry leadership.
