YEREVAN. – Armenia is concerned over new hotbed of tension in the region, Armenian Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian said when asked about Turkey’s actions in Syria.
“There is a concern about a new hotbed in the region, which will lead to human casualties. Civilians are injured, and Syrian Armenians are among them. A very serious cause for concern,” the minister said.
According to him, the success achieved in the fight against the ISIS and other terrorist groups inspired hope that peace and stability would be established in Syria. Meanwhile, the emergence of a new hotbed of tension can become an obstacle to stabilization.
“We are supportive of controversial issues to be resolved through negotiations and by using international platforms,” he added.
