The Armenian Embassy in Damascus operates in the ordinary working course, Tigran Balayan, Spokesperson of the Armenian Foreign Ministry, told ArmInfo's correspondent.
At the moment the issue of redeployment of the diplomatic mission in Damascus is not being considered. To note, on August 4 the Armenian onsulate in Aleppo was moved to the Armenian-populated district of Aleppo to provide the consular services in a safer and more efficient way.
