Artsakh’s Hadrut and Burbank Become ‘Friendship Cities’

The Burbank City Council on October 28 unanimously adopted a proclamation recognizing the town of Hadrut in the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic (Artsakh) as a “Friendship City,” the press office of Artsakh’s Foreign Ministry reported Friday.

The proclamation states that the people of Hadrut and the Republic of Artsakh have shown “tenacity and perseverance in the face of war, massacres, crippling poverty and tremendous hardships.”

The City Council emphasized that the Republic of Artsakh “has for more than twenty years stayed true and faithful to its citizens by remaining independent while working to bring change and stability to the Caucasus region, and by holding free and fair elections and referendums that were widely declared as a model for the region.”
