الرئيس عون وحيدًا.. والمستشارون يتسوقون

نقل عن مستشار سابق أنه وجد رئيس الجمهورية ميشال عون وحيداً في نيويورك ولما سأله عن المسؤولين والمستشارين المرافقين أجاب “عم يتسوّقوا” بحسب ما جاء في اسرار الالهة في صحيفة “النهار”.

I'm sorry but I don't understand, Francophone in Armenia?
I wonder how many (or should it be how few) Armenians speak French?

Thumb s.o.s 10 October 2018, 20:29

The French Armenian community is, by far, the largest in the European Union and the third largest in the world. Although the first Armenians settled in France in the Middle Ages, like most of the Armenian diaspora, the Armenian community in France was established by survivors of the Armenian Genocide of 1915.

I know that, so perhaps I should have said not Armenians, but living in Armenia.
