Families and individuals: Syrian-Armenians gradually return to Aleppo
YEREVAN, MAY 25, ARMENPRESS. In general, the situation in Aleppo is
good, the city’s recovery works are being carried out normally, Jirair
Reisian – Armenian lawmaker of Syria’s Parliament told Armenpress,
stating that after Aleppo’s liberation the situation is better, there
is no state of insecurity in the city.
“There are no shots in Aleppo, sometimes, small incidents, unexpected
clashes happen, however, the unsafe situation of previous days no more
exists. It is calm in the city”, Jirair Reisian said.
He said the water problem is solved, there is a natural water supply.
The electricity in the city was off for a long time, during those
years people bought electricity for lighting and taking care of their
daily needs. Already through the efforts of the authorities
electricity is provided for several times a day. As this is not
enough, people still continue buying electricity.
The roads in Aleppo are mainly open, especially inside the city.
Outside the city as well the roads are open. As for the safety,
incidents, clashes happen from time to time as a result of which the
traffic is suspended for several hours so that to prevent such
incidents. In any case, in general, traffic exists.
There is no shortage of food in the city, however, in line with this,
there are economic hardships, the income is limited, but the expenses
are multiplied. During the war the depreciation of Syrian currency
became the main reason for increase of prices of goods. The Armenian
lawmaker said the prices of goods will hardly return to the previous
level, thus, the economic difficulties still will be maintained.
“The classes come to an end, exams will start which will be followed
by the holiday season. As you know, the educational institutions need
renovations, the state is engaged in this work. I believe the
situation will gradually improve. Of course, we understand that this
is a long-term issue”, he said.
As for the business, Reisian said the trade centers operate normally,
but as for the production, it is still at the stage of initial steps.
“Many are unable to totally restore the destroyed, looted factories.
Few have chances to restore the production, however, not fully.
Therefore, we can state that the production section is not restored
yet”, he said.
Commenting on the possible return of Armenians to Aleppo, the Armenian
lawmaker said there is a certain progress.
“Of course, I have no statistics, however we hear names of people who
return. I can say that there are people who return to Aleppo,
including families and individuals”, Jirair Reisian stated.

YEREVAN. – Both Americans and Israel are conducting secret talks with the Kurds of Iraq and Syria, historian and turkologist Ruben Safrastyan told reporters on Monday.
In response to a comment that the State Department and Iran spoke out against establishment of a Kurdish state, the turkologist said: “Yes, both the State Department, and Iran stated that they oppose this process, but as historical experience suggests, issues related to the Kurds, are in focus of interests of great powers and regional states. Here statements and real actions do not coincide in many cases.”
“There is evidence that both Americans and Israel are conducting secret talks with Iraqi Kurds. That is, there is a big game in the Middle East,” added Ruben Safrastyan, Director of the Institute of Orientology at the National Academy of Sciences of Armenia.
