YEREVAN. – After a short pause, the Syrian Armenians’ intense influx to Armenia has resumed, Diaspora Minister Hranush Hakobyan told Armenian News-NEWS.am.  

Hakobyan explained that this is due to the resumption of the Beirut-Yerevan flights and the restoration of the bus link between Aleppo and Lebanon. 

The minister informed that about 200 Syrian Armenians come to Armenia on a weekly basis and, at present, there are over 10,000 Syrian Armenians in the country.

As per Hakobyan, very few of the Syrian Armenians arriving in Armenia subsequently move to another country, and many of them prefer Armenia to Lebanon because they have access to free education and state support in Armenia.

Hranush Hakobyan added that the Diaspora-Armenian charitable organizations, the Austrian Embassy, the Russian government, and the Caritas Foundation conduct respective aid programs in Armenia.
