We condemn the vicious years-long continued attacks against the peaceful civilian population of Artsakh by Azerbaijan’s armed forces, especially the massive military operation undertaken against Artsakh overnight on April 1-2, and we express our complete solidarity with the state structures of Artsakh and Armenia, the Armenian Armed Forces, and the people of Armenia and Artsakh; and we pledge all our resources to them.
We also express our deepest condolences to the families of those who lost their lives as a result of the indiscriminate attacks by Azerbaijan.
We are vigilantly monitoring the serious developments on the frontlines and are already taking steps to engage the highest levels of influencers in the United States to take ownership of their responsibility as co-chair of the OSCE Minsk Group and utilize effective measures to condemn this latest defiance and disregard for norms by Azerbaijan.
We also appeal to all community organizations and members to be prepared to take concrete steps to support the people of Artsakh and their security guarantors, the Armenian Armed Forces.
