Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Violating a cease fire, troops from Azerbaijan attacked Armenian forces on Wednesday, killing three Armenian soldiers. Rep. Judy Chu (CA-27) issued the following statement:

“After initiating a war last year, Azerbaijan is continuing to act aggressively and violently toward Armenia, despite the cease fire agreement. Last night’s attack that killed three Armenian soldiers is the latest example of Azerbaijan’s commitment to aggression, and that is why the US must cease our support for their military which enables such violence. I’m proud to be a cosponsor of Rep. Frank Pallone’s amendment to the State and Foreign Operations appropriations bill that would end all Foreign Military Financing for Azerbaijan. Today, as the House debates this bill, we will have the chance to put the US on the right side of this issue by ending this aid and pressuring Azerbaijan to stop their war mongering and violence. I urge my colleagues to support this important amendment that will bring peace and save lives.”
