Government says it will not give in to protesters call to resign after ceasefire agreement seen as capitulation

The office of Armenia’s prime minister has said that it will not allow the opposition to seize power by force, as heated protests have continued for a second day after the signing of a ceasefire in Nagorno-Karabakh seen as a capitulation.
