WASHINGTON, DC — Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) has sent a letter to the President of the Nagorno Karabakh Republic Bako Sahakian congratulating the people of Artsakh on the 25th anniversary of the National-Liberation Movement. In the letter, Rep. Schiff praises the Karabakh people’s courage as they pursue freedom and self-determination in the face of unremitting threats by Azerbaijan.

The full letter from Schiff is below:
Dear Mr. President:

I am writing to congratulate you, the people and government of the Nagorno Karabakh Republic on the 25th anniversary of the national liberation movement. A quarter century ago the people of Artsakh raised their voices for freedom and dignity and against Soviet communism and ethnic intolerance.

Artsakh’s path forward has not been easy and it is a tribute to you and your people that the trials of the past did not break your will and determination. The tragedy of Sumgait and other Azerbaijani cities 25 years ago, proved the righteousness of Nagorno Karabakh’s choice to survive and preserve its identity by establishing a sovereign democracy.

You have my support as you work to strengthen your democracy, and I will continue to stand with the people of Artsakh in their struggle towards international recognition. I join you today in looking forward to the day when Artsakh will achieve the recognition it deserves among the community of nations.

Sincerely,
Adam B. Schiff
Member of Congress
