Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan during a government meeting announced that the Republic of Armenia condemns this invasion. As stated in a statement by the Armenian Foreign Ministry, the Republic of Armenia condemns Turkey's military invasion of northeast Syria, which will lead to further deterioration of the situation in the region, civilian casualties, a large flow of internally displaced persons, and, ultimately, a new flow of humanitarian crisis. "The situation is particularly worrisome for national and religious minorities. This military invasion also poses an immediate threat of gross and massive violations of human rights based on identity. Armenia calls for effective international efforts to stop this military invasion, prevent mass atrocities and protect the people of Syria bordering with Turkey. Armenia supports the unity and sovereignty of Syria and calls for refraining from military encroachments on Syria and its people. Armenia will continue to provide humanitarian assistance to the friendly Syrian people at the local level ", the RA Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
