Rep. Kazarian urges diplomacy as Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict intensifies
State House – Rep. Katherine S. Kazarian (D-Dist. 63, East Providence) is calling on Azerbaijani forces to stop attacking Armenian forces and settlements in the Nagorno–Karabakh region as tensions have risen and the conflict between the two countries is intensifying at a rapid pace.
“As a proud Armenian-American, my heart aches for Armenia and all those who are trapped within this terrible situation. The aggression displayed by Azerbaijani forces is unacceptable. Their actions have destroyed the fragile regional stability that has kept this area of the world relatively peaceful until now. Therefore, it is imperative that the United States demand a cessation to Azerbaijani hostilities and further demand that neighboring Turkey cease military support for Azerbaijani aggression. This situation must be brought back from the brink of war and resolved through peaceful diplomacy. Violence, hatred, and war must not win the day. Peace must prevail.” said Representative Kazarian.
