*US-Azerbaijan Chamber of Commerce postpones conference.
*The US-Azerbaijan Chamber of Commerce conference–scheduled for late April–with the participation of Azeri President Haydar Aliyev has been postponed–according to sources and the chamber’s information agency. No reasons for the postponement were provided.
Azeri President Aliyev’s visit to Los Angeles to attend this conference is uncertain–and sources indicated that he might cancel his visit to the Southland entirely.
An Armenian Revolutionary Federation Western US Central Committee spokesperson announced that a special committee established–with the participation of 15 area Armenian organizations–to lead community-wide protests for the Aliyev visit will continue to meet–in order to counter any future visit by Aliyev or any Azeri governmental representative to the region.
