Armenian FM plans Syria visit to express support after earthquake


YEREVAN, FEBRUARY 16, ARTSAKHPRESS. The Armenian Foreign Minister Ararat Mirzoyan’s visit to Syria is being planned, Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan said at the Cabinet meeting. He said the purpose of the visit is to express Armenia’s support following the earthquake.

Pashinyan said that Armenia was one of the first countries to send humanitarian aid to the quake-hit Syria.

“I have to say that I find our work in the direction of Syria to be highly important as well. You know that there were objective and subjective circumstances that were making humanitarian aid to Syria less accessible. I have to state that Armenia was one of the first countries that made a decision and sent humanitarian aid to Syria. We are planning the Foreign Minister’s visit to the Syrian Arab Republic. We will organize it soon if our colleagues in Syria won’t mind. I think that the High Commissioner for Diaspora Affairs must also definitely visit Syria to express our support,” the PM said.

The PM added that Armenia will maintain contact with the Syrian and Turkish governments with the purpose of supporting the quake-hit countries as much as it can.
