U.S. Senator: I realize that it is a historical moment for this  country

ArmInfo. We highlight the meeting especially during the period, when the situation in Armenia  and in Nagorno Karabakh is rather complicated, when the inner and external challenges have an effect on today's security environment, which undermine the bases of statehood, security and the Armenian  people's unity: Head of the RA NA Armenia Faction Seyran Ohanyan said during the meeting with the members of the delegation led by the U.S. Senator Gary Peters, the press service of the RA NA reports.

It took place on September 25, where the deputies of the RA NA  Armenia Faction Anna Grigoryan, Lilit Galstyan and the deputy of the  RA NA With Honor Faction Taguhi Tovmasyan, as well as the U.S,  Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary to the Republic of  Armenia Kristina Alyson Kvien.

Seyran Ohanyan presented the situation in Nagorno Karabakh to the  members of the delegation. "Azerbaijan always retaliated the  self-determination of Nagorno Karabakh with wars, military  operations, and aimed at depopulating Armenians with silent agreement  of the international community," the Head of the NA Armenia Faction,  underscoring that today the next genocide is carried out by the  Turkish-Azerbaijani tandem against the Nagorno Karabakh Armenians  instead of self-determination. "It is a pleasure to meet with our  colleagues of the legislative structure. We have very many  commonalities within the framework of the legislative activities,"  Gary Peters said thanking the Head of the RA NA Armenia Faction for  the warm reception and conveying the greetings of the colleagues of  the Senate. He noted that he represents the State of Michigan, where  there is a big Armenian community. According to him, the Armenians  living there, are imbued with great love towards homeland, are  interested in the ongoing developments in Armenia. The Senator noted  that after the meeting he expects the problems and ways, by which the  U.S. can be useful, to be presented.

Taguhi Tovmasyan mentioned that the Armenians are in a difficult  period. "We know from the textbooks of how they shot, committed  genocide against in 1915, as a result of which the Armenian Diaspora  increased. On September 19, we witnessed how Nagorno Karabakh was  blockaded and bombed. People had no place to escape," the Taguhi  Tovmasyan detailed, speaking about numerous victims, displaced,  captured and kidnapped citizens. She mentioned that they expect the  support of more influential countries for defending the homeland and  maintain democracy. The MP added that after the cases of Nagorno  Karabakh the next atrocities will be committed in Armenia and to  prevent them it is necessary to act, imposing sanctions on Azerbaijan  and its President.  Lilit Galstyan noted that what happens in Nagorno  Karabakh, is a genocide, which could be prevented if the attitude of  the international community would be adequate.  "Unfortunately, not  holding accountable the aggressor by the international community,  burned green light, and today, we have clear genocide: ethnic  cleansing, destruction of cultural heritage, forcibly displaced  people and humanitarian disaster," Lilit Galstyan said. She mentioned  that though the USA condemned the actions of Azerbaijan at the level  of senators and congress members, however Armenia was expecting more  distinct, addressed actions. Speaking about the security problems,  the deputy of the Armenia Faction noted that the international  community and especially the USA should work out guaranteed  mechanisms for the protection of the residents of Nagorno Karabakh  and if necessary, guarantee the way of their salivation. "I have  repeatedly spoken up about the Resolution 907, which related to the  military support by the USA to Azerbaijan. Green light was burnt for  the aggressor with that Resolution," Lilit Galstyan added, expressing  conviction that the USA will make sufficient efforts for ensuring  guarantees of peace and security.  Anna Grigoryan noted that  Azerbaijan was not punished for the aggressive actions of 2020, and  today also continues acting with the same handwriting. She asked her  colleagues to act, noting that otherwise the ethnic cleansing and  genocide will be carried out.  "Your messages were very clear, and I  realize that it is a historical moment for this country. I would like  to mention that I am the initiator of the legislative bill on actions  noted by you in the USA. One of them is to give powers to the U.S.  President in order he could impose sanctions against such a player as  Azerbaijan. A reference will be made also to the Resolution 907 on  restricting the support to Azerbaijan. The legislation will also  envisage financing for humanitarian aid," the U.S. Senator Gary  Peters said. He also informed that he would visit the Lachin corridor  and would meet the forcibly displaced persons.
