YEREVAN. – The Armenian community of Syria is in a very serious situation, turkologist Ruben Melkonyan said during a press conference on Wednesday.
He noted that this is the first such case when Armenia needs to take concrete and tangible steps toward a part of its Diaspora.
“Today our country focuses on the processes unrolling in Syria, [and] Armenia’s proper circles are designing several action plans,” stated Melkonyan.
The turkologist also assured that everything will be done to accommodate the Syrian Armenians in Armenia that and the time has come this time for Armenia to stand alongside its Diaspora.
“It is preferable that this community continues living in Syria, [and] their relocation to Armenia must be to save them from the threat of death,” said Ruben Melkonyan.
