Conflicting reports have come in on whether the ceasefire between Armenia and Azerbaijan in the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh is holding. Russia urged both sides to observe the truce after the long-dormant conflict flared up on the weekend.
Armenia's parliament has elected protest leader Nikol Pashinyan prime minister. The transfer of power after weeks of protests resolves the immediate political crisis, but uncertainty looms on the horizon.
Opposition leader Nikol Pashinian has vowed massive protests after parliament rejected his bid for the premiership. The impasse heightens tensions following weeks of protests that ousted former PM Serzh Sargsyan.
Armenians are pinning their hopes on Nikol Pashinian, whose protest movement forced unpopular Prime Minister Serzh Sargsyan to resign. Now, the opposition leader says he wants to reform the country.
It's surprising how quickly Armenian Prime Minister Serzh Sargsyan gave in to pressure from the streets and resigned. After such fast-paced change, it is not clear where the country is headed, says DW's Miodrag Soric.
