The RA Minister of Labor and Social Affairs Zaruhi Batoyan wrote on her Facebook page.
"After the explosion in Lebanon it is natural that our compatriots living in Beirut, especially the citizens of Armenia, should have expected the support of the Republic of Armenia.
Now that the government has provided first aid to Lebanon, the first steps have been taken, we must be ready for the fact that if our compatriots living there decide to leave Lebanon for any reason, our country must become their refuge so that they will get a new opportunity to live freely, happily and prosperously in Armenia.
And, most importantly, everything must be done so that after coming to Armenia they do not think about moving to another country, as happened with many Syrian-Armenians.
For this purpose first of all social assistance and integration programs should be developed, the existing programs should be reviewed. The work in this direction has started and the ministry is participating in the discussions".
