Armenia's president visits Syunik, stresses the existence of "deep feeling of absence of security"
Armenia’s president Armen Sarkissian and Human Rights Defender Arman Tatoyan paid a working visit to Kapan town in Armenia’s Syunik province.
In the municipality office the two met with the heads of Kapan, Meghri communities, deputy head of Kajaran community and heads of a number of settlements.
The president noted that during the provincial visit he was in a number of settlements and met with residents and heads as well as again got familiarized with the issues.
“Each village that has become bordering has own issues. There is a community that has been divided in two, one part has remained in the side of the enemy. There are communities having heating, water supply and other issues. But the most important issue everyone is concerned with is the security issue,” the president said, adding that the issue is deeper than can be imagined.
“The security issue has clear picture – the Azerbaijani soldiers or their positions, flags or posters. In reality there is a deep feeling of absence of security,” the president said, adding that he visited Syunik to listen to their issues and understand how the presidential institute may be useful.
The heads of communities briefed on the created situation and their viewpoints over the security issues.
President and the Ombudsman also visited Kapan airport, got familiarized with the conditions and opportunities, airport’s operation and security issues.
