Armenia’s Catholicos urges international community to undertake urgent and practical steps to prevent further bloodshed in Syria


His Holiness Catholicos of All Armenians Karekin II referred to the developments in Syria drawing the attention of the international community to the actions of Turkey which go against the international rule and law. He stressed that the Holy See of St. Etchmiadzin expects urgent and practical steps to prevent the further bloodshed.

“The danger of attacks by Turkey against the ethnic minorities and Syrian-Armenians in particular awaken the recollections of Armenian Genocide carried out by the same state in 1915-23. These actions must be strictly condemned by the international community,” Karekin II wrote, stressing that he shares the pain and suffering of the Syrian people and prays for soonest establishment of peace.

He stressed that the current developments do not have any justification.
