"Rumors are spreading that we intend to flee... But we are here," Pashinyan said as he walked down one of the main streets of the capital city Yerevan.
"The army is subordinate to the people and the Prime Minister. The people are in charge... That's why I invite you to gather in Republic Square. It will be as you say," he stressed.
Meanwhile, former President Robert Kocharian called on the Armenian people to support the military demanding the resignation of the Prime Minister. Armenian security forces, however, called on the population to refrain from "illegal actions" that could endanger national security.

Pashinyan has been accused of being primarily responsible for his country's defeat in the recent war against Azerbaijan for control of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic.
The political crisis erupted with the dismissal of Deputy Chief of General Staff Tigran Khachatrian, who criticized the unseriousness of the Prime Minister's claims about the alleged shortcomings of Iskander missiles during the war.
Following this, the Armed Forces leadership issued a statement calling for the resignation of Pashinyan who came to power after a revolution in 2018.
"The PM and the government are no longer capable of making appropriate decisions in this crisis situation," the Armed Forces said.
