A bipartisan group of 69 US Representatives, led by Congressional Armenian Caucus founding Co-Chair Frank Pallone, has called for ending military aid to Azerbaijan and sending $150m in assistance to Artsakh and Armenia. The request comes in the form of a letter to Appropriations Subcommittee on State-Foreign Operations Chairman Mario Diaz Balart and Ranking Member Barbara Lee, who have already begun drafting the US House version of the Fiscal Year 2024 foreign aid bill. The letter includes a request for $100m for security, economic, governance, and rule of law assistance to Armenia, $50m for Artsakh to provide a comprehensive assistance strategy and support the Armenian population of Nagorno-Karabakh in their rebuilding and resettlement efforts, the suspension of all US military and security aid to Azerbaijan, and language supporting the Administration’s efforts to secure the release of Armenian POWs illegally held by Azerbaijan. Over 50,000 pro-Artsakh advocates used the ANCA action platform, writing, tweeting, and calling their US Representative to co-sign the Congressional letter.
