The press conference of the Armenian health minister Arsen Torosyan, convened on Tuesday, was interrupted.
At the beginning of the press conference, Torosyan presented the work of the ministry. Then the head of the department began to ask questions. In turn, a children’s oncologist, hematologist, member of the Board of Trustees of the City of Smiles Foundation Gevorg Tamamyan expressed his intention to ask some questions.
“We will give you this opportunity, Mr. Tamamyan,” the minister said.
But, realizing that the children’s oncologist was going to ask him a whole series of questions, Torosyan said: “You can gather your own press conference or, you can sit here and continue when I leave.”
“Today you hold a position on our taxes and therefore are required to answer all questions,” he said.
After these words, Torosyan left the press conference hall, saying that his meeting with reporters was simply frustrated.
