ArmInfo.The Milli Majlis of Azerbaijan issued a statement in connection with the law S.3000 (Armenian Protection Act of 2023), adopted earlier by the US Senate. As Turan reports, the statement condemns the "anti-Azerbaijani act" and calls for taking an objective position regarding the processes in the South Caucasus.
"The Azerbaijani Parliament rejects the decision of the US Senate of November 15. Such actions by Washington have a negative impact on peace and stability in the region," the statement said. Next, according to tradition, an old song is started about the main thing - about 30 years of indifference of the international community.
"Unfortunately, the United States is repeating the mistake it made regarding Azerbaijan in 1992 with the adoption of the discriminatory Section 907 of the Freedom Support Act.
Today's actions of the United States as a mediator have led to a loss of trust on the part of the Azerbaijani society, and American foreign policy has completely failed in recent years. This is evidenced by US policy in the Middle East and Afghanistan. The Milli Majlis of Azerbaijan once again declares that Azerbaijan will always react decisively to all negative steps based on the norms and principles of international law," the statement reads.
On November 16, the American Senate adopted a pro-Armenian project S. 3000 (IS) - Armenian Protection Act of 2023, depriving Azerbaijan of military support. This document does not allow the president to use Public Law 107-115, which allowed the president to bypass the Section 907 of the Freedom Support Act, which prohibits providing military assistance to Azerbaijan. The act was introduced in the Senate on September 29 of this year. It was introduced by US Senator Gary Peters (D-MI). If the project is adopted by the House of Representatives and signed by the head of state, the US President will not be able to bypass the Section 907 and receive funding to help Azerbaijan from budget allocations for 2024-2025.
