ArmInfo.Armenian expert on America Suren Sargsyan caught the US Ambassador to Azerbaijan of violating the presumption of innocence when assessing incidents between Armenians and Azerbaijanis in Los Angeles.
So, on his Facebook page, Sargsyan wrote that the US ambassador to Baku accused the Armenians of the Armenian-Azerbaijani clashes in Los Angeles. "He accused the Armenians of provocation, asking the Azerbaijani authorities for forgiveness for what happened. The fact that the US ambassador blames the citizens of his country is at least surprising. And I am sure that our compatriots, citizens of his country, will answer the ambassador. Moreover, if the ambassador does not express regret with this groundless assessment (the embassy has not refuted it yet), then I expect the Armenian Foreign Ministry's statement on the fact of this biased assessment, "Sargsyan noted.
At the same time, the political scientist considers it appropriate to call the US Ambassador to Armenia Lynn Tracy to the Armenian Foreign Ministry to present the essence of the problem and the negative consequences of such unfounded accusations, especially when the incident is under investigation by law enforcement agencies.
Recall that on July 21 representatives of the Armenian community of Los Angeles held a rally at the Consulate General of Azerbaijan in protest against the latest aggravation on the Armenian-Azerbaijani border. The peaceful action was held under the slogans "No to Aliyev", "No to war". The protesters sang and performed Armenian traditional dances. The clash began after a number of provocations by the Azerbaijanis, in particular, one of the provocateurs hit an Armenian girl. There were casualties on both sides, the police intervened. It is also worth noting that clashes between Armenians and Azerbaijanis took place both in different cities of the United States and in different countries around the world. In connection with the aggressive behavior of Azerbaijanis, representatives of the youth wing of the ARF "Dashnaktsutyun" held a protest action in New York. Protesters came to the action with flags and banners of Armenia and Karabakh, sang the anthem of Armenia, Armenian folk songs and performed Armenian dances.
