    This Embassy needs to be reduced in size. There two more such US embassies in such a size in the world. There are in most war thorn countries in the world : Afghanistan and Iraq.
    Its time to understand that US is not Armenia’s military ally. The activities conducted in this building damage Armenian state directly or indirectly. In this building reconnaissance and other data is collected about Armenia which may be available to Turkey as NATO ally to conduct its strategical agenda in the region. Is Armenian government stupid?
