Speaker Pelosi Remarks at Congressional Delegation Press Conference with Armenian Speaker Alen Simonyan
Part of their speech.
Speaker Pelosi. Well, as you saw, the immediate response from the United States was to stop the violence and to have a ceasefire. We – our delegation had been very outspoken, saying that this was initiated by Azeris and that there has to be recognition of that and how that will stop. What we have been learning on this visit is some of the – some of the challenges that were presented by the so-called peace agreement coming from the conflict into – resolution of the conflict in 2020 and how that maybe contributed to the violence now on the part of the Azeris. And I promised my colleagues that they have to respond to that question.
Congresswoman Speier. The House of Representatives has already introduced a resolution, co-authored by all of us here, that will say that we condemn the actions by Azerbaijan, that they must cease and desist. And we are hopeful that we will take up that resolution as soon.
As to our commitment to Armenia, we will continue to support the integrity of the democracy of Armenia and the borders and resist any effort to have those borders changed.
My opinion on it
It was very important meaning the visit of Nancy Pelosi for Armenian Nation. Especially on this time, when we have a problems with border, and our safety is at great risk. I thought that the Armenian Genocide accepted by America in 2019 will scare Azerbaijan and Turkey and stop the attack on Armenia. But it’s a pity that it didn’t happen, and now we are facing a big problem.
