RA MFA: 35 Armenian students return to USA from Yerevan thanks to  effective interaction with Georgian partners

ArmInfo. As a result of the agreements between the foreign ministers of Armenia and Georgia, in close cooperation with the American Councils, on April 9, the return  of Armenian and Georgian students studying in various US high schools  under the FLEX program was organized.

This is set out  in the statement of the press secretary of the  Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Armenia Anna Naghdalyan, which also  recalls that the Armenian Embassy in the USA maintains constant  contact with compatriots studying in various American states on FLEX  programs.

"Under the coordination of the Armenian Embassy in the USA, the  American Council ensured the safe transfer of students from 19 states  to the city of Chicago with the subsequent flight to Armenia via the  Doha-Tbilisi-Yerevan transit route. The Armenian Embassy in the USA  and the Honorary Consulate of Armenia in Chicago at the Chicago  Airport provided Armenian schoolchildren with necessary medical  safety equipment. It also coordinated the meeting and escort of  Armenian students from one room to another for departure from Doha  airport, "Naghdalyan said.

She emphasized that as a result of this interaction 34 students are  returning to Yerevan, and another student who studied in the United  States as part of the American ACES program. The representative of  the foreign ministry also recalled that all of the above students  will be subjected to a 14-day quarantine regime upon returning to  their homeland.

At the same time, the press secretary of the Armenian Foreign  Ministry noted that the above is another good example of cooperation  between Armenia and Georgia in the return of their citizens from  abroad in the context of the coronavirus pandemic.

"We thank the American Council for the quick and trouble-free  organization of the return of Armenian schoolchildren, as well as our  Georgian partners for their support and effective cooperation,"  Naghdalyan summed up.
