BISHKEK, September 16. /TASS/. Armenia hails Russia’s efforts to prevent a humanitarian catastrophe in Syria, Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan said on Friday.
"We hope the latest Russian-U.S. agreements on cessation of hostilities in Syria will create conditions for a lasting settlement of this bloody conflict," he said at a narrow-format meeting of the Council of Heads of State of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS).
"We hail consistent efforts of our CIS partner, the Russian Federation, aiming to prevent further aggravation of the humanitarian catastrophe in Syria. We are looking at possible involvement of Armenia and the Armenian diaspora into these processes."
"Our meeting is held in conditions of a rapidly changing international and regional situation," Sargsyan said. "Tensions continue to grow, in particular in regions bordering the Commonwealth of Independent States. Terrorist groups are demonstrating increased activity, the level of economic instability is high and the migration crisis continues."
