BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:00 P.M.) – Armenia will participate militarily in Syria if necessary, Armenian Defense Minister Davit Tonoyan said Tuesday in Yerevan at a joint press conference with his Cypriot counterpart Savvas Angelidis.

According to Novosti-Armenia, Tonoyan said that if the Armenian military chooses to enter the Syrian conflict, it will do so in accordance with its nation’s law.

“We will try to collaborate with non-parliamentary forces while making any decision,” Tonoyan said.

Asked about reports on verbal agreement to dispatch the mission, Tonoyan said there was a de facto written request from the Syrian authorities.
