YEREVAN, OCTOBER 11, ARMENPRESS. Discussions were held in Armenia’s Security Council attended by the relevant authorities regarding the current situation in Syria’s Armenian-populated settlements caused by the October 9 military invasion by Turkey.

The Security Council said it closely follows the ongoing developments in Syria’s north-east and at the same time develops options to respond to possible developments aimed at ensuring the security of the Armenian population.

On October 9 Turkish forces launched an offensive in Syria’s north-east.

The Armenian foreign ministry released a statement noting that Armenia condemns the military invasion by Turkey in north-east Syria, which would lead to deterioration of regional security, losses among civilians, mass displacement and eventually to a new humanitarian crisis.

The United Arab Emirates also condemned the Turkish aggression in Syria.

Iran also condemned this action, urging Turkey to withdraw the troops from Syria.
