YEREVAN. – Zhamanak newspaper writes: Edmon Marukyan, the leader of the opposition Bright Armenia party, has appealed to Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan to "support the hundreds of thousands of Lebanese Armenians," and implement programs to receive and help them in Armenia.
According to our Lebanese source, there are no longer hundreds of thousands of Lebanese Armenians in Lebanon, and their number is around 45-50,000 at best. The Lebanese Armenians do not want to come to Armenia under any circumstance, and the only issue that concerns them today is the restoration of the stability of their country's banking system.
According to various estimates, Lebanese banks have a capital of $ 3-5 billion of Armenian origin.
