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.

“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
