YEREVAN, Armenia – Armenia's acting prime minister says talks with the opposition have been called off.
Karen Karapetian, who took over on Monday from Prime Minister Serzh Sargsyan after he abruptly resigned, said in a statement on Wednesday that the much-anticipated talks were canceled after the opposition came forward with unnamed "preconditions and demands."
Protest leader Nikol Pashinian, who spearheaded massive anti-government protests earlier this month, called on his supporters to come out on the streets on Wednesday.
