Prime Minister Andranik Markarian was told to “undergo urgent medical treatment” after first heart tests at a clinic in Paris, the Armenian government’s press office announced on Wednesday.
“The prime minister’s condition is good, but doctors recommended him to stay motionless for several days to avoid unnecessary complications,” it said in a statement. The recommendation was made after they conducted a “non-surgical intervention” aimed at restoring the normal functioning of arteries feeding Markarian’s heart, according to the press service. No other details were reported.
The 50-year-old Markarian, who underwent a heart surgery in Yerevan in October 1999, left for the French capital on Monday, citing renewed cardiac problems.
