BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:00 P.M.) – Armenia will participate militarily in Syria if necessary, Armenian Defense Minister Davit Tonoyan said Tuesday in Yerevan at a joint press conference with his Cypriot counterpart Savvas Angelidis.

According to Novosti-Armenia, Tonoyan said that if the Armenian military chooses to enter the Syrian conflict, it will do so in accordance with its nation’s law.

“We will try to collaborate with non-parliamentary forces while making any decision,” Tonoyan said.

Asked about reports on verbal agreement to dispatch the mission, Tonoyan said there was a de facto written request from the Syrian authorities.

It would be the ultimate irony were Armenia to fight turks in north west Syria when one considers the turkish killing fields of Armenians to be in
the near north east Syria, Raqqah to DeZ region.

Ara Khachatryan

And? What’s your point? There are Armenians living in other parts of Syria as well, besides the place in Der Zor, where they were massacred.


One thing is sure : Armenians got the skins of the 3 evil Pashas :
Enver, Talaat and Djemal soon met their doom, as 5 others of the main responsible for Armenian genocide.
