8,000-10,000 Syrian Armenians fled Syria to Armenia during the several
past years, however, half of them subsequently left Armenia for other
countries, deputy chairman of the Social Democrat Hunchakian Party
(SDHP) Armenia office Vazgen Mesropyan said at a conference titled
"Syria: Terrorism, Armenians, Elections" organized by Voskanapat
analytical center.

According to him, one of the reasons that Syrian Armenians leave
Armenia is that they fail to find a job in Armenia. "Measures must be
taken so that they stay in Armenia and develop our country just like
they developed Syria. We must prevent their emigration from Armenia.

It is everyone's duty," Mesropyan said.

Mesropyan also said that according to latest reports, fighting
continues in Aleppo, with Armenian districts being targets of shelling
and gunfire.
