YEREVAN. – Armenian troops have not been sent to Syria.
Ruben Rubinyan, Chairman of the Standing Committee on Foreign Relations of the National Assembly of Armenia, on Monday told about the aforesaid to reporters in parliament.
He noted this when responding to the remark that the PM’s spokesperson had stated that a humanitarian team from Armenia was sent to Syria on the basis of verbal agreements, and to the question as to whether this was permissible.
“Troops have not been sent to Syria; (…) a team of specialists has been sent to Syria,” Rubinyan said, in part. “Second, the [Armenian] Ministry of Defense has clearly noted—in its [respective] message—the legal grounds based on which the team of specialists was sent to Syria.”
