ANCA calls for suspension of U.S. military aid to Azerbaijan

PanARMENIAN.Net - Azerbaijan's most recent unprovoked killing, just a few hours ago, of yet another Armenian - Karen G. Galstyan, 20, along the Nagorno Karabakh border underscores the urgent need for the Congress to suspend U.S. military aid until Baku ceases its attacks, fully renounces violence, and commits to the peaceful resolution of regional conflicts, the Executive Director of the Armenian National Committee of America said.

“This fatal cross-border sniper assault is the Azerbaijani military's second killing of an Armenian in a week that saw a dramatic escalation of Baku's war rhetoric and the wounding of a 16 year-old Armenian girl by an Azerbaijani sniper,” Aram Hamparian said in a statement.

ANCA urges the Armenian community to call Members of the U.S. House and Senate panels responsible for writing the Fiscal Year 2015 bill to ask them to eliminate American aid to the Azerbaijani military.
