Syria’s Armenian community unwilling to return homeland – expert

PanARMENIAN.Net - Syrian Armenians are reluctant to move to homeland, Director of RA NAS Institute of Oriental Studies said.

“Despite rumors in Armenia, suggesting the whole community is willing to flee Syria, none of the prominent Syrian Armenians has yet come up with such a statement,” Ruben Safrastyan said.

The expert noted that the community continues to stay in the country, having sent children to a secure place.

“The community’s organized actions are testimony to our nation’s historic experience,” he said, stressing the need for RA to hold a cautious stance on the Syrian issue, considering Armenian community residing in the country.
