Yerevan, SANA-Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan described on Wednesday relations which connect the Syrian and Armenian peoples as “deep and strong”, affirming that Syria will defeat terrorism and restore its security and stability.

“Armenia supports Syria against terrorism with all its forms, and it also supports the Syrian people and State during this ordeal to which it is exposed,” President Sargsyan said at a meeting with Speaker of the people’s Assembly Mohammad Jihad al-Laham who chairs a parliamentary delegation to a political forum on combating the crime of genocide on the centennial anniversary of the Armenian genocide.

Al-Laham, for his part, said Syria, as leadership and people, appreciates stances of friendly Armenia in light of terrorism and political and economic pressures to which it is exposed.

He affirmed the Syrian people’s solidarity with Armenia on the centennial anniversary of genocide, saying that the world is called today to recognize the nations’ rights and respect them.

In the same context, al-Laham discussed with Speaker of the Armenian National Assembly Galust Sahakyan the parliamentary ties between Syria and Armenia and means to develop them.

Sahakyan, for his part, appreciated the participation of the Syrian people’s Assembly in that forum, saying “The Armenian people will not forget the Syrian people who hosted and backed the Armenians at time of genocide which was perpetrated by Turkey before 100 years.”

In another meeting, Armenian Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandyan echoed the comments of Sahakyan, affirming that Syria and Armenia will continue cooperation and coordination on all levels, particularly in combating terrorism.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
