ANCA Rapid Responder Letter: Ask President Biden Stop Forcing Democratic Artsakh into Genocidal Azerbaijan

Dear President Biden:

I am writing to voice my severe disappointment in your Administration’s attempts to force democratic Artsakh – home to over 120,000 indigenous Christian Armenians – into genocidal Azerbaijan, a certain death sentence for the men, women, and children of this integral part of the Armenia.

The Biden-Harris Administration has failed the Armenian nation, actively aiding and materially abetting Azerbaijan while abandoning Artsakh and forsaking Armenia, a blockaded, land-locked genocide survivor state facing relentless attacks, cruel blockades, and escalating belligerence by both U.S.-armed Azerbaijan and U.S.-allied Turkey. Your record – outlined below – is in urgent need of a major course correction:

— Arming and abetting the Azerbaijani military

— Ending U.S. humanitarian programs in Artsakh

— Failing to investigate Azerbaijani war crimes

— Refusing to airlift humanitarian aid to Artsakh

— Selling advanced U.S. fighter jets to Turkey

— Declining to sanction Turkey or Azerbaijan

I call upon you to affirm Artsakh’s right to self-determination, to hold Azerbaijan accountable, to sanction Turkey, and establish Armenian security as the top U.S.-Armenia bilateral priority.

Please know that my family, friends, and colleagues are closely watching your actions on each of these pressing issues.


Your generosity empowers our advocacy, inspires our work, and sustains our momentum.
