Karabakh conflict

American-Armenians urge Congress to sanction Turkey and Azerbaijan

Thousands of Armenians and many foreigners living in the United States held a protest on October 15 in Washington DC, outside the Congress, urging to condemn the Turkish-Azerbaijani aggression against Artsakh (Nagorno Karabakh) and Armenia.

The protest participants urged the US authorities to impose sanctions on Turkey and Azerbaijan, stop providing military or any kind of aid to these countries and recognize Artsakh.

The protesters were holding the flags of Armenia and Artsakh, as well as posters, stating “We Demand Justice”, “Stop Azerbaijan”, “Recognize Artsakh”, “Stop War”, “We Will Win”.

Earlier the American-Armenians held another protest outside the Turkish Consulate and then outside the White House, demanding to recognize the independence of Artsakh, withdraw Turkey from NATO, stop providing financial aid to Azerbaijan and Turkey.
