YEREVAN, APRIL 24, ARMENPRESS. Syrian President Bashar al-Assad hosted the representatives of the Armenian community on the occasion of the 103rd anniversary of the Armenian Genocide, ARMENPRESS reports, citing “Gandzasar” newspaper.
During the meeting the sides spoke about the role of the Armenian community during the past years of the Syrian crisis and the restoration of the territorial integrity of Syria in the future.
