RA MFA: Armenia Extremely Concerned about Military Actions in Lebanon

PanARMENIAN.Net - "Armenia is extremely concerned about the military actions in Lebanon and their escalation, as well as the great loss of civilian life," says the statement by the Armenian Foreign Ministry. "Armenia condemns any violence whether it be abduction or use of force. We particularly denounce the use of such disproportionate force intended solely to collectively punish civilians and damage infrastructure. This kind of reaction by Israel is particularly difficult to understand given the fact that the Lebanese government has clearly distanced itself from the abduction incident. We hope that there will be restraint in the region and also hope there will be an immediate ceasefire so that the issues can be addressed by peaceful means," the statement says.
