Lebanese-Armenians Look Towards Armenia as a New Home

Sara Anjargolian is Chief of Staff to Zareh Sinanyan, Armenia’s High Commissioner for Diaspora Affairs. She has just returned to Armenia from a trip to Lebanon with the High Commissioner, following the massive explosion in Beirut on August 4, which resulted in more than 200 casualties. The explosion significantly impacted most Armenian-populated areas in the city, causing substantial damage to the community’s businesses, educational, cultural, and media institutions.

Sara Anjargolian talks with CivilNet’s Ani Paitjan about the situation in the Lebanese capital, the Armenian communities’ mood and their growing desire to move from Lebanon and settle in Armenia.
