ArmInfo.One of the main tasks of our service is the integration of refugees and stateless people into the life of the country, providing international protection to refugees and stateless persons. Head of the Migration Service of the Ministry of Territorial Administration and Development of Armenia Armen Ghazaryan said this at a press conference on June 20. "In this area, we had 2 main problems: the problem of providing asylum to refugees, as well as their integration into the life of Armenia.
At the moment, Armenia does not have a sufficiently spacious building for a refuge of refugees, but with the support of international partners we are building a new building, which will be more comfortable, roomy and will meet international standards, " Ghazaryan said. According to Ghazaryan, in order to better integrate the refugees, the staff of the Service began to study the religions, life, features of the countries from which they come to Armenia, and the reasons for emigration. "The largest percentages of refugees in Armenia are citizens of Afghanistan, Syria and Yemen. In particular, 22,000 citizens emigrated from Syria to Armenia, of which, according to UN monitoring, there are 14,000 left in the country. And we need to do everything we can to successfully integrate life ", - he stressed. Ghazaryan noted that every government of the country is trying to stimulate the growth of repatriation, and people who left Armenia and then returned to the country also need help to integrate into society so that they will not leave again. However, the most difficult problem facing the Migration Service is the housing problem of refugees from Azerbaijan. "In 2004, 700 families were allocated apartments. According to the data currently available to the Migration Service, another 882 families are in the queue, most of whom live in Yerevan. Most of the refugees who settled in the country's regions have already received apartments", Ghazaryan stressed. He also noted that this problem is in the center of attention of the RA authorities.
