Comment by the Spokesperson of MFA of Armenia in response to a media inquiry

18 November, 2023

Question: We saw the information about the case of vandalism against the synagogue in Yerevan, which also caused various comments in the media. Will you address the topic?

Answer: As we have already stressed before, the Republic of Armenia considers any attack on any religious institution and in particular any manifestation of vandalism, any disrespectful act towards the synagogue in Yerevan impermissible. Such cases of intolerance or its incitement are unacceptable, and criminal proceedings have already been initiated by the competent authorities of the Republic of Armenia. We categorically reject any manipulation of the incident, subject, be it for political, propaganda or other intentions. Anti-Semitism and intolerance on national or religious grounds have no place in Armenia.
