The Constitutional Right Union party calls on the world community to apply sanctions against Turkey for supporting the terrorist attacks on Armenians in the Syrian town of Kessab.
"Lots of Armenians were killed, thousands were deported. Serious damage was caused to local Armenian churches, schools and cultural facilities. It was one more example of Turkey's terrorist policy with respect to Syrian Armenians. As a result of Turkey's support for Islamic terrorists, the Armenian community of Syria has almost halved, with almost 80,000 Armenians turned into refugees. Just like 100 years ago, Turkey aims to annihilate Armenians not only in their historical lands but wherever they are," the party says.
It regrets to see that being a NATO member and an EU associate member, Turkey cooperates with terrorists and attacks civilians. "And we also regret that the West is doing nothing to prevent or at least condemn these actions. Even more, the US and EU leaders had a big role in kindling war in Syria and setting Islamic terrorists against the Syrian authorities," the party says, noting that unlike them, Russian NGOs and mass media are actively supporting Syrian Armenians.
So, the Constitutional Right Union urges the world community to protect and support Armenians and other Christian minorities in Syria and to help them to return to their homes.
