YEREVAN, MARCH 24, ARMENPRESS: Though there will be emigration from
the Armenian community of Syria, it is early to speak of dissolution
of the community. Arabologist Armen Petrosyan told a news conference
that though the official Damascus thinks the activities of rebels are
directed toward rousing of ethnic tension, it cannot be perceived
unequivocally, as they mainly focus state structures, Armenpress
Candidate of Political Sciences Narek Galstyan stressed the Armenian
community needs security guarantees by the state, so it is obvious
that the number of the Armenian community will decrease due to social
state. Armenians mainly resettle in Lebanon, Iran, Canada and Armenia.
The political scientist considers Armenia cannot undertake anything in
this case and has repeatedly stated that it stands up for home
stability of Syria.
