Current Issues of Concern
to the Armenian American Community

Armenian Genocide Commemoration

President Bush should honor his campaign pledge to properly commemorate the Armenian Genocide. The Congress should adopt the Armenian Genocide Resolution - H.Res.316 and H.Con.Res.195 in the House; S.Res.320 in the Senate..

Self-Determination for the Republic of Nagorno Karabagh

The United States should formally recognize the independent Republic of Nagorno Karabagh, affirming its right to self-determination within secure borders.

Section 907 of the Freedom Support Act

The Congress should reassert its authority to legislate guidelines governing our foreign aid policy by including a provision in the fiscal year 2007 foreign aid bill which allows the President to extend the authority to waive Section 907 on a year-to-year basis only with explicit Congressional approval.

U.S. Aid to Armenia

The Admininstration should continue its Millennium Challenge program in Armenia; Congress should should set a hard-earmark of at least $90 million for Armenia in the fiscal year 2007 foreign aid bill.

Expanding the U.S.-Armenia Relationship

The Administration and Congress should expand joint programs between the U.S. and Armenia, such as the U.S.-Armenia Task Force, and move forward in finalizing a Double Taxation Treaty, a Social Security Agreement, and other bilateral arrangements to facilitate increased economic cooperation.

U.S.-Armenia Anti-Terrorism and Security Cooperation

The Administration should expand its security cooperation with Armenia, particularly on programs designed to reduce the military threat to Armenia from Turkey and Azerbaijan.

U.S. Military Aid to Azerbaijan

The U.S. should maintain parity in all U.S. military aid to Armenia and Azerbaijan, and prohibit any sales or transfers to Azerbaijan of U.S. equipment, training or technology that could be used against Armenia or Nagorno Karabagh.

U.S. Arms Sales/Transfers to Turkey

Congress should carefully scrutinize proposed sales and transfers of U.S. military hardware to Turkey, and ensure strict enforcement of Code of Conduct legislation limiting arms sales to regimes, including Turkey, that violate human rights or engage in aggression against neighboring states.

U.S. Aid to Nagorno Karabagh

The Congress, in the FY07 foreign aid bill, should require that the Administration provide $10 million on an annual basis for humanitarian and developmental programs in Nagorno Karabagh.

Restrictions on the Armenian Community and the Destruction of the Historic Armenian Presence in Turkey & Azerbaijan

The State Departments should publicly protest violations by Turkey of the religious, civil, and rights of its Armenian community, and should carefully monitor, investigate, and publicize the destruction by the Turkish and Azerbaijani government of Armenian historical and cultural monuments.
