To the question of Radio Azatutyun of what task Karapetyan is resolving not attending negotiations, the oppositionist answered: "I think that Karen Karapetyan is simply not confident in his negotiating abilities, and if a person is not confident in his negotiating abilities in his homeland, how is he is going to hold talks on the Karabakh issue?". According to Pashinyan, either he is elected prime minister or no one is.

Karapetyan suggested Pashinyan should accept the President Armen Sargsyan's suggestion that all parliamentary and non-parliamentary powers "come together and discuss the current situation in the country and the ways to resolve it".
