Orientalist: Security of Kessab's Armenians is fully ensured within the short-term outlook

  • Tuesday, June 17, 22:37

 The security of Kessab's Armenians is fully ensured within the short-term outlook, Ruben Safrastyan, Head of the Institute of Oriental Studies, National Academy of Sciences of Armenia, said at a press conference on Tuesday.     

"I think the Armenians of Keesab will start returning home now. The militants have destroyed the town but it can be restored", said the expert. He thinks that one cannot speak of long-term security, because if the power in Syria weakens, Turks will not miss the chance to get to Northern Syria via Latakia and to get the opportunity to control the Mediterranean coast.    

Safrastyan thinks that Ankara has failed to carry out the given plan due to the protests and condemnation of the Kessab developments by the international community.  

To recall, on June 15 the Syrian governmental troops liberated the Aermenian-populated town of Kessab seized by the armed Islamists on 21 March 2014. -n-
