A number of Armenian media made reports about the hospitalisation of President Serzh Sargsyan in connection with the deterioration of his health. In particular, the Yerevan-based Zhamanak daily said today that due to poor health, the Armenian leader was taken to the Nairi medical centre.
According to the information, on January 5, Sargsyan did not attend the liturgy before Christmas, as well as the Christmas liturgy in the Cathedral of the Holy Etchmiadzin on January 6 because of health problems. The publication also notes that the Armenian president has not appeared in public since the beginning of the year.
In turn, the presidential administration denied media reports that President Serzh Sargsyan was allegedly hospitalised in connection with the deterioration of his health during the New Year holidays.
‘This information is not true. The president had a slight cold. During this period, he was at home,’ said spokesman of the Armenian president Vladimir Hakobyan.
