Armenia must demand that the world community condemn Turkey's actions against the Kesab Armenians, representatives of the Aleppo authorities Nerses Sargsian told journalists on Wednesday.
He said that in his speech Armenia's President spoke about actions against ethnic minorities. "But the problem here is also that for the Kesab Armenians Kesab is their historical land even though it is situated in the territory of Syria and the Turkish authorities are directly supporting the Islamist groups that are attacking the town. So, we would like the Armenian authorities to express a clear attitude towards the events," Sargsian said.
Another representative of the Aleppo authorities Garo Yuzbashian said that the Kesab Armenians are eager to go back to their homes but they can't do this now as they need security guarantees. As regards the readiness of the Armenian and Nagorno-Karabakh authorities to receive the Kesab Armenians, he said that if the latter are forced to leave Syria, the first place they will come to will be Armenia and only then depending on their occupation, they will chose where exactly they will leave.
