Senior Biden administration officials are scheduled to visit Armenia, with their arrival expected on Monday, as reported by Reuters citing an American official.
Among the visiting officials are US Agency for International Development chief Samantha Power and US State Department Acting Assistant Secretary for Europe and Eurasian Affairs Yuri Kim.
During her visit, Samantha Power is set to hold meetings with senior government figures and will "affirm US support for Armenia’s democracy, sovereignty, independence, and territorial integrity and commitment to address humanitarian needs stemming from Nagorno-Karabakh," according to the official statement.
Samantha Power's visit marks a significant moment as she becomes the first USAID administrator to travel to Armenia. Her trip will serve to reaffirm the US's partnership with Armenia and to “express deep concern for the ethnic Armenian population in Nagorno-Karabakh and to discuss measures to address the humanitarian crisis there.”
The official emphasized, "The United States is deeply concerned about reports on the humanitarian conditions in Nagorno-Karabakh and calls for unimpeded access for international humanitarian organizations and commercial traffic."
