Cicilline Condemns Azerbaijani Attack on Armenia

Nov 16, 2021

WASHINGTON, DC – Following reports that Azerbaijani troops launched an attack on Armenia’s eastern border, Congressman David N. Cicilline (RI-01) released the following statement.
“Azerbaijan’s escalation and attack on Armenia’s eastern border is a clear violation of last year’s peace deal and cannot be tolerated. Six thousand people died in last year’s conflict, and not one more soul should die because of this dispute. Azerbaijan must acknowledge and respect Armenia’s sovereignty and borders.”
“As a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, I call on the United States to engage both countries to ensure that today’s negotiated ceasefire is maintained. In the coming days and months, it will be incumbent upon the international community to come together and enforce the principles of the UN Charter to prevent further aggressions by Azerbaijan.”
