Armenia: Prime Minister Resigns




Yerevan, 4 November 1996 (RFE/RL) -- Armenian Prime Minister Grant Bagratian has resigned.

Itar-Tass says Bagratian announced his decision at a cabinet meeting today in Yerevan. No immediate reason was given, but correspondents say Bagratian's resignation was widely expected after President Levon Ter-Petrosyan announced he would press for major changes in government.

Bagratian is scheduled to hold a news conference later today.
