Lebanon ARF Expresses Support to Syria’s Assad

BEIRUT–The Armenian Revolutionary Federation Central Committee of Lebanon and His Holiness Aram I–Catholicos of the Holy See of Cilicia–in separate letters to Syrian President Hafez-al-Assad–expressed their support to Syria and the Syrian people on the growing tensions between Turkey and Syria.

The ARF letter expresses confidence that Assad will lead the Syrian people in overcoming the attacks by Turkey "which through the Armenian Genocide–the invasion of Cyprus and persecution of Kurds has demonstrated its imperialist and military-minded tendencies."

The letter added that "the ARF Central Committee of Lebanon–in the name of the entire ARF Lebanon organization condemns Turkey’s harassment of Syria… and pledges its support to you and the Syrian people."

The letter by Catholicos Aram I also expressed the support of the Lebanese-Armenian community to Assad and the Syrian people on confronting the Turkish obstacle.
