Washington, DC – Today, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), the lead sponsor of the Armenian Genocide Resolution in Congress, met with Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh Republic) Parliament Speaker Ashot Ghoulian in his Capitol Hill office. Schiff and Speaker Ghoulian exchanged views on a wide variety of issues, including the status of the Minsk process, the development of the NKR economy, demining efforts,  and the importance of continued U.S. assistance to Artsakh, both for economic reasons, but also as a reaffirmation of American support for NKR.  Speaker Ghoulian invited Congressman Schiff to visit NKR and Schiff indicated his strong desire to return to NKR and that he will pursue a CODEL with other friends of the NKR and Armenia.

During the meeting, Ghoulian presented Schiff with a medal commissioned to commemorate the 25thanniversary of the Artsakh’s liberation movement.

“It was wonderful to meet again with Speaker Ghoulian to discuss Artsakh and how the United States Congress can support peace and economic development there,” said Rep. Schiff. “I hope to visit Artsakh soon to assess the situation and to review our assistance programs and other efforts to strengthen the NKR.”
