ARF youth stage protest at UN Office in Armenia - video
The ARF Nikol Aghbalyan Student Union on Thursday held a demonstration in front of the UN Office in Armenia.
In addition, they handed a letter to the office, and demanded the UN condemn Turkey’s operations in Syria’s predominantly Armenian-populated town of Kessab, and enable the Kessab Armenians to return to their homes.
Despite the pouring rain, the protesters stated that they will not leave the premises unless a UN office representative responded to them.
A few minutes later, Sergey Shipilov, United Nations Department of Safety and Security’s Security Advisor in Armenia, came down and listened to the protestors’ demand.
Subsequently, the demonstrators sang patriotic songs and left.
A group of Syrian Armenians, and the Social Democrat Hunchakian Party’s student-youth union members also were on hand at the demonstration.
