Pashinyan appealed to Putin on Syrian Armenian community`s security  issue: Armenian Prime Minister is grateful to Russian President`s for  quick response 

ArmInfo. Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan yesterday addressed to President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin with a request important for the  security of the Armenian community of Syria. Pashinyan announced this  on October 12 on his Facebook page.  Earlier, the RA Prime Minister's  press service reported that the leaders of Armenia and the Russian  Federation had a telephone conversation during which they discussed  the situation in the north of Syria " in the course of yesterday's  conversation at the CIS summit in Ashgabat." Other regional issues  were raised too.

"I am grateful to the quick response of the President of the Russian  Federation," Pashinyan wrote after the conversation.

To recall, on October 9, the Turkish Armed Forces invaded the Syrian  Republic. On October 10, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan  during a government meeting announced that the Republic of Armenia  condemns this invasion. The Armenian Foreign Ministry issued a  statement stating that Turkey's military invasion of northeast Syria  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 especially worrying 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 will continue  to provide humanitarian assistance to the friendly Syrian people at  the local level," the Armenian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.  Already after the meeting of the Armenian government, the Cabinet of  Ministers in private held a discussion of the situation in the north  of Syria.
