Among these, of course, are a truthful and just resolution of the Armenian Genocide; a free and fair settlement of Nagorno Karabakh based on democracy and self-determination, and; the promotion of U.S.-Armenia economic relations through targeted programs and bilateral agreements to increase trade and investment,” expressed Armenian National Committee of America Executive Director Aram Hamparian.
