EU allocates 3 million euros to integrate Syrian refugees into Armenia
The EU has allocated 3 million euros to integrate Syrian refugees in Armenia.
This was reported in a statement published on the Armenian Foreign Ministry’s website following the first meeting of the EU-Armenia Partnership Council, which was held on June 21 in Brussels.
“The Partnership Council emphasized that the search for a lasting and reliable political solution to the conflict in Syria is of paramount importance. To facilitate the integration of Syrian refugees in Armenia, the EU mobilized 3 million euros under the Madad fund,” the statement said.
Before the war in Syria, the Armenian diaspora in the country was as many as 110,000 people.
