Jackie Speier, co-chair of the Armenian Affairs Group of the U.S. Congress, formally introduced a resolution condemning Azerbaijan's war crimes in Armenia and Artsakh. She called for sanctions against Azerbaijan and international tribunals to investigate the matter.
The resolution also calls for an investigation into Azerbaijan's illegal detention of Armenian prisoners of war, condemns the destruction of Armenian churches and historical monuments, and expresses support for the territorial integrity of Armenia and Artsakh. Jackie Speier was joined by U.S. Congressional Co-Chairman for Armenian Affairs Frank Pallone, Congressmen Adam Schiff and Anna Eshoo.
Earlier, the press service of the Armenian Revolutionary Federation's (Dashnaktsutyun) Central Office reported on the initiation of this legislative initiative.
