Armenians unable to leave Syria over lack of travel documents

PanARMENIAN.Net - Hayazn Union has issued a statement urging to immediately provide all Syrian Armenians who wish to leave the country with Armenian passports.

“A large number of Armenians are currently unable to flee Syria after the state organizations authorized to grant them the right to exit from the country halted operation.

Armenian high-ranking officials have repeatedly expressed readiness to take emergency measures in case the situation further exacerbates. However, our compatriots are currently left to the mercy of fate due to the lack of prompt steps. Many Syrian Armenians are in need of RA passports and any further delay may have tragic consequences.

We urge to immediately provide all Syrian Armenians who wish to leave the country with Armenian passports,” the statement reads.
