Vice President Joe Biden issued an announcement on Wednesday calling on President Trump to “to stop the advance of Azerbaijani troops into Nagorno-Karabakh.”

“Following the collapse of the ceasefire announced by Secretary of State Pompeo on October 25, a large-scale humanitarian disaster is looming for the people of Nagorno-Karabakh, who have already suffered too much and need to have their security protected. After a month of fighting, it is long past time for President Trump to directly engage the leaders of Armenia, Azerbaijan, and Turkey to push for immediate de-escalation and stop the advance of Azerbaijani troops into Nagorno-Karabakh,” Biden said on Wednesday.

He also called on the administration to enforce Section 907 bans on aid to Azerbaijan and the flow of military equipment into Azerbaijan.

“While he brags about his deal-making skills at campaign rallies, Trump has yet to get involved personally to stop this war. The administration must fully implement and not waive requirements under section 907 of the Freedom Support Act to stop the flow of military equipment to Azerbaijan, and call on Turkey and Russia to stop fueling the conflict with the supply of weapons and, in the case of Turkey, mercenaries,” said Biden.

“The United States should be leading a diplomatic effort to end the fighting, together with our European partners, and push for international humanitarian assistance to end the suffering; under my administration that is exactly what we will do,” pledged Biden.

This is Biden’s fourth announcement since Azerbaijani forces, backed by the Turkish military and Ankara-backed jihadists began attacking Artsakh on September 27.

    Thanks Joe for calling on everyone to do everything for Armenians. Can you mention one thing you did for America let alone for Armenia in your 47
    years in politics. It is very sad and discrediting for Asbarez to publish this article with Joe’s picture like if it is a big deal for us. It is more disappointing that Azbrez and Haourt Sassounin have involved in propaganda for today’s destructive Democrat party pretending that it is all for Armenia and Armenians. Of course this is a free country and you can endorse and camping for any party or candidate. The problem is you are doing that dishonestly and pretending that you do not..
