ANCA demands Trump administration to quit the initiative to increase  military assistance to Azerbaijan

ArmInfo.The Armenian National Committee of America requires the US Presidential  Administration to abandon the initiative to increase military assistance to Azerbaijan.

Thus, the ANCA statement available to ArmInfo notes that the Trump  administration provided Baku with an additional $ 100 million of  military assistance to ensure security, which is generally directed  against Iran. However, the organization indicates that this  assistance will help to ensure new offensive capabilities and the  release of other military resources to continue the aggression of the  Aliyev regime against Artsakh and Armenia.

"We are concerned that the additional funds of $ 100 million  allocated by the Trump administration of Baku will allow the  Azerbaijani side to replenish its arsenal of weapons with  substantially new equipment, increase tactical and offensive  capabilities, while freeing up state resources to resume cross-border  operations against Artsakh and Armenia," ANCA Director of Government  Affairs Teresa Yerimyan noted.  At the same time, she expressed her  conviction that such actions by the Trump administration are  unacceptable, especially against the backdrop of threats that  continue to sound from Baku. Yerimyan stressed that Washington should  either stop sending military aid to Baku, or equalize the assistance  of Armenia and Azerbaijan, thereby maintaining parity.
