Alert along with the Issue of Salvation of Syrian-Armenians
Press speaker of Heritage party Hovsep Khurshudyan wrote on his Facebook page:
“During the war in Iraq, after the fall of Saddam Hussein, a globe scale crime took place, when making use of the anarchy atmosphere, robbers pillaged country’s museums, where priceless samples of Sumerian, Akkadian, Babylonian and of other civilizations spiritual and material heritage was summarized. Their study was one of those single ways that could also spread light upon civilization of Armenians and civilization of pre-Christian Armenia on culture, economics and politics. The same danger is in Syria. If Assad regime fails and anarchy leads over the country, the valuable heritage of Urartu (Araratyan kingdom) as well as of country’s ancient civilization of neighbor of Mets Hayq will be robbed.
Along with saving Syrian-Armenians, this is an alert, which in my opinion should be boosted to international area both by the state authorities and the Armenian scientific community.”
