ANCA calls to condemn Azerbaijani aggression

16:01, 20.06.2012 Region: World News, Armenia, Karabakh, Azerbaijan Theme: Politics

Armenian National Committee of America urges to send webmails to Senators and Representatives calling for condemnation of Azerbaijan’s aggression against Armenia.

“On the morning of Monday, June 4th, during the early hours of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s visit to the Caucasus, Azerbaijan launched a brazen attack into the Tavush region of Armenia, killing three Armenian soldiers, potentially sparking a regional war that could involve NATO, and setting back the cause of a peaceful, negotiated settlement. Over the next two days, additional attacks led to six more deaths along the Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh borders.

It’s time for America and the rest of the international community to take Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev at his word when he openly threatens to restart his war against Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh. The cost of appeasement -and the dangers of a renewed war - are far too high for us to either dismiss Aliyev’s threats or to ignore the hazard he represents to the
region and beyond,” the statement said.
