STEPANAKERT, OCTOBER 8,  ARTSAKHPRESSUS Congresswoman Jackie Speier told “Artsakhpress“ after the meeting with Artsakh Republic President Bako Sahakyan.

She underlined that she did not even imagine that Artsakh could be so wonderful.

“Artsakh has a very difficult geopolitical position and the problems arise from it. The people of Artsakh in justice have a right to speak about their rights. After visiting Artsakh, we should redouble our efforts to persuade the US authorities to support Artsakh,” she noted.
US Congresswoman Judy Chu said she had  made amendments to the National Defense Authorization Act.
The amendment reiterates the importance and urgency of implementation of the Royce-Engel initiative, aimed at reducing tensions along the Line of Contact between the armed forces of Artsakh and Azerbaijan.
In particular, the document envisages withdrawal of snipers, heavy arms and new weaponry from the line-of-contact.

“I have done all this without visiting Artsakh. From now on, I will work harder to ensure that Artsakh is no longer endangered, in order to have peace and corresponding resources for the further development, “she concluded.

On 8 October President of the Artsakh Republic Bako Sahakyan received members of the US Congress Jackie Speier and Judy Chu.

Diverse issues on the US - Artsakh relations, settlement of the Azerbaijani-Karabakh conflict and regional developments were on the discussion agenda.
