    WIKILEAKS and US Ambassador in Armenia describes how Armenian families send their pre-teenage girls to Turkey for prostitution:

    But the illegals also work in other services.

    Look what US Ambassador writes:
    Cable reference id: #06YEREVAN1019

    Forbes ranks Armenia as 2nd worst economy in world.
    forbes.com


    Turkey subsidizes Armenian economy by the money-transfer these women generate.
    And these girls probably pay their share to Armenian police on the border.
    So I wouldn't say, that Armenian government opposes this trafficking of illegal Armenian girls and women to Turkey.

    I don't see how human trafficking in Armenia would be any worse than in the other areas of the Caucasus and Russia, as for Forbes rankings, whoever wrote those rankings must be delusional (or just trolling). The worst three economies in the world are clearly Zimbabwe, North Korea and Somalia. Though government corruption, crime, and the economic blockade by Turkey and Azerbaijan, not human trafficking would be the reasons Armenia falls behind economically.

    Armenia still shares borders with Georgia, Russia and Iran.
    Azerbaijan and Turkey are just 85 to 90 Million people.
    There are 6 billion more people with whom Armenia can trade with, sign agreements with and attract FDI from.

    And I never claimed, that human trafficking is the reason why Armenia lacks behind in economical development. But the economical situation is surely a cause for the human trafficking and the drama of the pre-teenage girls who are sent by their parents to the neighboring country/-ies for prostitution.

    Any Armenian honor killings of women like in the muslime world that are sanctioned under shariah law? How about Armenians beating their disobedient women permitted by the quran and the religion of peace?

    That map is terrible, can't see a thing, nor does it provide actual numbers of human trafficking. Though realistically due to government corruption, the mafia in Armenia, lack of statistical data, and rough surveys I doubt you could honestly get an accurate view of the region.

    Armenians should be above working in Turkey in any capacity, let alone whoring. Turkey is knee deep in Ukrainian and Russian 'Natasha' whores anyway, given the ugliness of their own women. Azeris and Turks are still bitter about tiny Armenia's successful reclaim of Nagorno-Karabakh.
