“Doors open to Lebanese Armenians willing to return to homeland.” – Zareh Sinanyan.

Armenia’s doors are open to Lebanese Armenians willing to return to homeland, High Commissioner Zareh Sinanyan said in an interview with Radio Liberty in Beirut.

“We will help those who want to remain and will tell those who wish to come to Armenia that the homeland is waiting for all Armenians with open doors,” the High Commissioner stated.

He said about 300 Lebanese Armenians had already returned to Armenia for permanent residence before the blast. Thirty-seven returned on the plane that delivered humanitarian aid.

Armenia has sent two planes with 12 tons of humanitarian aid each to Beirut, after the city was left devastated as a result of a massive blast on August 4. A third flight is expected this week.

High Commissioner for Diaspora Affairs Zareh Sinanyan has left for Beirut to assess the needs on the ground.
