President Joe Biden has bypassed Section 907; the United States will continue to provide military assistance to Azerbaijan. International Studies expert Suren Sargsyan wrote this on Facebook.

"Section 907 of the Freedom Support Act prohibits the US government from providing assistance to Azerbaijan. This can only be done if the president bypasses that law, notifies the Congress about it, and can provide military assistance to Azerbaijan. This is what all US presidents do—every year since 2002.

After the 2020 war [in Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh)], there was a real opportunity to counter this process. [Then presidential] candidate Biden was calling on [then-]President Trump to suspend aid to Azerbaijan and no longer bypass Section 907. Our [American Armenian] community and lobbyists did everything to make use of this window of opportunity. In this regard, they do not receive any assistance from Armenia’s authorities. They are fighting alone in Washington against Turkish-Azerbaijani lobbying, embassies, and petrodollars," Suren Sargsyan added.
