Artsakh’s Foreign Ministry has reiterated the inadmissibility of Azerbaijan’s attempts to consolidate the illegal occupation of the territories of the Republic of Artsakh, which were seized as a result of the 44-day aggression unleashed by Azerbaijan with the direct participation of Turkey and international terrorists in September 2020.
“Any actions aimed at making legitimate the results of the violations of international law and the illegal use of armed forces should be strongly condemned,” the Foreign Ministry stated.
The U.S. House expressed concern over President Joe Biden’s April 23rd waiver of Section 907 restrictions on U.S. aid to Azerbaijan, citing its contribution to the disparity in U.S. military assistance to Armenia and Azerbaijan, in a report accompanying the Fiscal Year 2022 Foreign Aid Bill (H.R.4373), adopted by a vote of 217 to 213, reported the Armenian National Committee of America (ANCA).
“We welcome today’s U.S. House report language as a meaningful step, alongside today’s adoption of the Pallone Amendment, toward rolling back President Biden’s reckless waiver of Section 907 and, more broadly, stopping all U.S. arms and aid to Azerbaijan’s oil-rich, racist, and openly anti-Armenian Aliyev regime,” said ANCA
U.S. House passed the Pallone Amendment, cutting U.S. military aid to Azerbaijan, the Armenian National Committee of America reports.
The Pallone Amendment states, “None of the funds appropriated or otherwise made available by this Act [H.R.4373] under ‘International Military Education and Training’ and ‘Foreign Military Financing Program’ may be made available for Azerbaijan.”
The provision does not block discretionary military equipment which may be transferred by the Department of Defense under U.S. laws Section 333.
Congressional Armenian Caucus Co-Chair Frank Pallone (D-NJ) welcomed the House passage of the Amendment.
Pallone Amendment (H.R.4373) talking points:
Stop U.S. Arms and Aid to Azerbaijan:
Armenian National Committee of America (ANCA) efforts to block U.S. arms and aid to Azerbaijan took another step forward today with the U.S. House Rules Committee deciding to permit a full House vote on an amendment, led by Rep. Frank Pallone and his Congressional Armenian Caucus colleagues, blocking U.S. military financing and training assistance for the Azerbaijani armed forces.
The House vote on the Pallone amendment to the FY2022 foreign aid bill (H.R.4373) can come as early as Wednesday, July 28th. Pro-Artsakh/Armenia advocates can write, call, and tweet their U.S. Representatives to vote for the amendment by visiting anca.org/alert.

The ultimate goal of the Azerbaijani-Turkish coalition is to wipe Armenia and Armenians off the map, the European Armenian Federation for Justice and Democracy (EAFJD) said in a statement.
The comments come after Azerbaijan once again launched a significant military offensive on the sovereign territory of the Republic of Armenia, in the North-Eastern direction last night.
“After the attacks on Yeraskh community, near Nakhijevan borders and Sotk village in Gegharkunik Region, this is the third time in one week that the criminal authorities of Azerbaijan have been breaching the ceasefire agreement and blatantly violating the territorial integrity of Armenia. As the fighting are reportedly still going on, since last night three Armenian servicemen have
