Armen Vardani Sarkissian (Armenian: Արմեն Վարդանի Սարգսյան; born 23 June 1952) is an Armenian politician. He was the President of Armenia from 2018 until 2022.[1] He served as Prime Minister of Armenia from 4 November 1996 to 20 March 1997 and was the country's (longest-serving) ambassador in London from 1998 until 2018.

Sarkissian became President of Armenia on 9 April 2018.[2] He resigned on 23 January 2022 because of lack of "influence" given to him by the country's constitution.[3]
