Speaking about Kessab Armenians’ return to their homes, the official said that work is underway in that direction.
“After the March 21 events in Kessab it is impossible to restore the town in a short time, but life is slowly returning to normal,” Mrs Stepanyan said.
She noted that several Armenian families from Kessab remain in Armenia.
“The condition of Armenians in Syria depends on the general situation in that country,” Lusine Stepanyan said.
Citing the Diaspora Ministry’s data, the official said that 40,000-45,000 Armenians remain in Syria and 12,000 Syrian Armenians have moved to Armenia.
