YEREVAN — Armenian Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian will visit Syria upon the instruction of Prime Minister Hovik Abrahamian to learn about the situation on the spot, Diaspora Minister Hranush Hakobian said at the Government sitting today.

“Unfortunately, the situation in Aleppo is endangered,” Hakobian said referring to the dyer situation in Aleppo and the measures the Diaspora organizations take to help the local Armenians, adding that a number of Christian districts have been targeted in the past months.

She said 200 people have arrived in Armenia from Aleppo in the recent period. “The major problem Syrian Armenians face here is housing, as most of them want to settle in capital Yerevan,” Hranush Hakobian said. She added, however, that the issue of rents has been solved with the support of the UN Office and benevolent organizations.

“In collaboration with the Ministry of Economy we are working to intensify the support for the organization of small and medium-sized businesses,” Hakobian said.
