ANCA Condemns Aliyev’s Escalation of Attacks Against Armenia. Karabakh



Armenian National Committee of America (ANCA) Executive Director Aram Hamparian condemned, Friday, Azerbaijan’s latest attacks on Armenia and the Nagorno Karabakh Republic (Artsakh), which have caused 3 casualties this week and several injuries.

Hamparian stated:

“The Obama Administration flashes Baku the green light each time it chooses to limit the U.S. response to Azerbaijan’s unilateral aggression to generic calls upon all sides to refrain from violence.”

“Everyone – ranging from the senior officials who run U.S. intelligence agencies to bright 9th graders who follow foreign affairs – knows that it’s Ilham Aliyev who is initiating these attacks. Pretending otherwise is a transparent farce, one that is being perpetrated with deadly consequences.”

“President Obama should abandon this deeply flawed and now demonstrably failed policy of false parity, and instead undertake concrete, common sense steps to avert war and put in place the foundations for a just and lasting peace. Among these are international proposals – already agreed to by Armenia and Artsakh, but not by Azerbaijan – such as agreements on the non-deployment of snipers, the addition of OSCE observers, and the internationally mandated deployment of gunfire-locator systems along the line of contact.”

The ANCA has launched the online #StopAliyev initiative, urging Armenians worldwide to use social media and the ANCA’s March to Justice advocacy tool to call on the international community to take concrete steps to end Azerbaijan’s aggression against Armenia and Artsakh. To take action, visit:

    Aliev is a coward piece of soviet s**t. He could do a great favor to Armenians by returning Azeri territories. Because of his cowardice Armenia is mow on its straight path to the self-extinction.

    Armenia is a poor puppet of the Russians therefore the USA does not care what happens there. Change sides and the USA will love you. The USA would love a friendly Muslim state right there in Iran and Russia’s backyard too.
    Sadly these lands offer nothing that the USA needs or wants, not even the oil, so it is happy to give all the problems to Russia in the hopes that the mess will cause them some headaches.
    The people of Artsakh? Who cares.
