The Pico Rivera City Council unanimously on Tuesday passed a resolution honoring the Republic of Artsakh (Nagorno Karabagh) and its citizens.
The resolution announced the town of Karvachar, Artsakh and the City of Pico Rivera as “Friendship Cities”, reported the Armenian National Committee of America - Western Region (ANCA-WR).
The resolution goes on to recognize the sacrifices, dedication and resolve shown by the residents of Karvachar and the Republic of Artsakh in the face of extreme adversity.
“We stand proud with the City of Pico Rivera for the unanimous passage of this critical resolution spotlighting the shared values with the people of Karvajar and thank the councilmembers and the community organizations who worked hard to bring it to fruition,” stated ANCA WR Executive Director, Elen Asatryan
After the vote, all councilmembers echoed how proud they were to have passed this long overdue resolution, which they saw as a continuation of the strong partnership the city shares with the Armenian community.
This year the town of Karvachar marks the 21st anniversary of its liberation. Karvachar is a key strategic point for the Republic of Artsakh because it provides a strong link between Armenia and the Artsakh Republic. Its liberation was vitally important because it secures the Northern and the Northeastern borders of Armenia and Artsakh.
