YEREVAN. – Opposition Armenian National Congress (ANC) bloc condemns the ruling regime for its shameful actions regarding Syrian-Armenians and demands that the government should take urgent measures.

“Continuous conflict in Syria has long ago turned into a real civil war between the authorities and the rebels. The Syrian-Armenian community has found itself in dangerous environment. The escalation was predictable, and our compatriots endangered in Syria would have first of all thought of leaving for Armenia.
