ANCA presents priorities for working with Biden Administration

ANCA presents priorities for working with Biden Administration

ArmInfo.The Armenian National Committee of America (ANCA) presented the priorities for working with the Administration of the new U.S. President.

Thus, as the official website of the Organization reports, ANCA calls  on Biden-Harris Administration to urgently support policy priorities:  <We join with our community, coalition partners, and Congressional  allies in encouraging the Administration to engage constructively and  cooperatively on U.S. policy priorities impacting Armenia, Artsakh  (Nagorno Karabakh), Eurasia, Eastern Mediterranean, and the Greater  Middle East.

In light of the past Administration's passivity and the aggressive  intervention of hostile regional powers, the United States must now  pivot toward a pro-active approach that protects and promotes the  Artsakh Republic's security; holds Baku and Ankara responsible for  their war crimes and ongoing hostility; strengthens the U.S.-Armenia  Strategic Partnership, and; locks-in permanent U.S. Executive Branch  remembrance of the Armenian Genocide.

Urgent Biden Administration attention - in its first days in office -  is required to restore stability, promote peace, and check Aliyev and  Erdogan's genocidal pan-Turkish plans:

- ASSISTANCE FOR ARTSAKH/ARMENIA: An emergency $250 million  humanitarian assistance package to meet humanitarian needs and safely  and sustainably return Armenian refugees to their homes in Artsakh,  and a new Millennium Challenge compact to support high-tech education  in Armenia.

- MILITARY AID/SALES TO AZERBAIJAN/TURKEY: Full enforcement of  Section 907 of the FREEDOM Support Act; suspension of all U.S.  military and security assistance to Azerbaijan and Turkey, and; the  denial of all new arms-export licenses to both Azerbaijan and Turkey.

- SANCTIONS: Global Magnitsky and other statutory sanctions against  the Aliyev and Erdogan regimes for the serious human rights abuses  they committed during Azerbaijan's aggression against Artsakh,  including the use of Foreign Terrorist Fighters recruited by Turkey.

- INVESTIGATION INTO U.S. PARTS IN AZERBAIJANI DRONES: A joint State  Department, Pentagon, and Department of Justice investigation into  U.S. parts discovered in Turkish drones used by Azerbaijan to attack  Artsakh.

- RELEASE OF PRISONERS: U.S. leadership in securing Azerbaijan's  release of Armenian civilians and soldiers, many of whom have been  tortured, mutilated, and murdered on social media.

- PROTECTION OF CHRISTIAN CHURCHES: A high-profile U.S. role in  documenting, monitoring, protecting, and preserving Armenian churches  and other holy and cultural sites in areas currently under  Azerbaijani military control.

- RECOGNITION OF ARTSAKH: U.S. recognition of the Artsakh Republic's  independence as an urgent remedial action required for the very  survival of the Christian Armenian population of this ancient  Armenian land.

- RESET OF U.S.-ARMENIA RELATIONS: An upgraded strategic partnership  focused on concrete economic and military cooperation that supports  and sustains the security of both Armenia and Artsakh.>
