The Russian MFA has condemned the killing of Armenian priests in Syria, Russian MFA spokeswoman said.
“We express our sincere condolences to the families of the deceased and the Armenian community in Syria,” Maria Zakharova noted.
According to her, the acts of terror and violence against Christians that continue outside the regions of the country controlled by the Syrian government cause outrage.
She noted that Moscow is convinced that an end to terrorism and extremism in Syria is possible only under the conditions when the legitimate government of Syria will control the entire territory of the country, ensuring its sovereignty, territorial integrity, constitutional order and a peaceful, dignified life for all Syrians, regardless from their denominational affiliation.
As reported earlier, Fr. Hovsep Bedoyan, pastor of the Armenian Catholic community of Qamishli, Syria, and his father, Fr. Apraham Bedoyan were killed while passing through the road under terrorists’ control.
