Armenian Diaspora Minister Mkhitar Hayrapetyan said on Monday that he intends to make staff changes.
He said that the changes will not be purges and that everything will be decided after taking into account the criteria of effectiveness.
Mkhitar Hayrapetyan emphasized that the combination of experience and youth in the ministry was his main goal.
“There will be no hasty decisions,” he said. “I am eager to work with the existing team, and I am confident that we will be able to solve all the problems we face.”
Commenting on fears that he is too young to fulfill his duties, he said the fears are justified, but he will work hard to produce results.
