Armenia may get US resettlement aid

The United States may help Armenia with its refugee problem. As Rosbalt has learned from the press service of the Armenian National Assembly, the matter was discussed at a meeting between the speaker of the National Assembly, Artur Bagdasaryan, and the chief of the Armenian office of the US Agency for International Development (AID), Kit Simons.

Bagdasaryan asked Simons to add help for 4,000 refugees from Azerbaijan, currently living in temporary shelters, to the AID program for Armenia. Simons promised the speaker that he would seek approval of financing to help provide the necessary apartments .

It may be remembered that, during the war in Karabakh in 1988-1991, more than 300,000 people fled into Armenia from Azerbaijan. Many of them remain without permanent housing.
