Pelosi urges negotiated, comprehensive settlement in South Caucasus

PanARMENIAN.Net - Members of the U.S. Congress delivered remarks at the Congressional Armenian Genocide Observance 2023, Armenpress reports.

Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi, Senator Robert Menendez, Congressman Frank Pallone, Congressman Adam Schiff and others spoke about the U.S. recognition of the Armenian Genocide and the need to stop aid to Azerbaijan amid its aggression against Artsakh and Armenia.

“There must be a negotiated, comprehensive and lasting settlement to this conflict so that we can pave a way to peace and security. Make no mistake, support for the Armenian people transcends partisanships and politics. This is very bipartisan. America will be there as Armenia holds down in the forefronts in the battle of democracy versus autocracy. We saw that when we were there,” Pelosi said in her remarks about the Nagorno Karabakh conflict.

As Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, Pelosi traveled to Armenia in September 2022.
