Armenia closely follows the developments in Syria and tries to find ways to ensure the security of Syrian Armenians, Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian said at a joint press conference with visiting OSCE Chairman-in-Office, Serbian Foreign Minister Ivica Dačić.

Speaking about his recent visit to Syria, the Foreign Minister said the objective was to see the developments on the spot.

“We consider that it will be possible to solve the crisis by immediately stopping the military actions, launching dialogue between all political forces in Syria,” Minister Nalbandian said.

“There are thousands of Syrian Armenians living in Armenia today. The Armenian leadership has been doing and continues to do its best to support them,” the Minister added.

“It was important to meet with representatives of the Syrian Armenian community, to offer them our support and to reconfirm that Armenia stands by them,” Edward Nalbandian said.
