YEREVAN, March 24. /ITAR-TASS/. Armenia has expressed concern over the situation in the Armenian-populated town of Kesab, north-west of Syria.
“The Armenian Foreign Ministry rivets much attention to the issue. Armenians have been from Kesab and are staying in Latakia. We try to find ways in order to deliver aid to the area,” the ministry’s spokesman, Tigran Balayan said.
In the meantime, Armenia's parliament has urged “the government to take measures in order to protect the rights of Syrian Armenians”. “Armenians in the whole world are shocked with the latest events in the town of Kesab and adjacent areas,” parliamentarians said. "We consider the incident an egregious example of human rights violations."
Parliamentarians condemn “the Turkish army’s actions aimed against the Armenian community in the Middle East” and urge “the Syrian and Turkish authorities to conduct an unbiased investigation”. “We demand the world community give an assessment to human rights violations and send UN observers to Kesab,” parliamentarians said.
