ANCA and AAA, together with Greek, Kurdish, Assyrian and Christian  groups, will hold a protest against Erdogan`s visit to Washington

ArmInfo. The Armenian National Committee of America (ANCA) and the Armenian Assembly of America (AAA) have teamed up with Greek, Kurdish, Assyrian, Christian  human rights and religious groups to fight for freedom and protest  against the visit of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to  Washington and a meeting with American leader Donald Trump, scheduled  for November 13th.

So, according to the reports of ANCA and AAA, received by ArmInfo,  earlier, the chairman of the committee of the House of  Representatives for Foreign Affairs, Eliot Engel (D-NY), urged the  members of the chamber to exert pressure on President Donald Trump so  that the latter would withdraw his invitation to the President of  Turkey, stressing that " Erdogan's bloody campaign in Syria  destabilized the region and jeopardized US national security."

Erdogan's decision to invade northern Syria on October 9 had  disastrous consequences for US national security, led to deep  disagreements in the NATO alliance and caused a humanitarian crisis  on the ground.  Turkish troops killed civilians and members of Syrian  democratic forces, one of the most important US partners in the fight  with ISIS, and expelled more than one hundred thousand people from  their homes in northern Syria / Given this situation, we believe that  this is not the right time to visit the United States by Erdogan, and  we urge you to cancel have this invitation, "the lawmakers addressed  Trump.

The ANCA also informed that on November 13 at 12:00 local time they  will hold a rally in front of the White House, where the  Erdogan-Trump meeting will be held at that time. At the same time,  the organization noted that the time of the protest will vary  depending on the schedule of the meeting of the leaders of the two  countries.
