Reject the racist, anti-Azerbaijani resolution at U.S. Congress

On Sep. 26, 2017, Congressman Christopher Smith (R-N.J.) and Congressman Jim McGovern (D-MA) have introduced a resolution called “Promoting United States national security and foreign policy objectives through consolidation and strengthening of the rule of law and respect for human rights in the Republic of Azerbaijan” in the House of Representatives of the U.S. Congress.
This resolution, if passed and enacted, will inflict a tremendous damage on one of the most important friendships the U.S. has in the world, namely the long-lasting friendship with the Republic of Azerbaijan, which is a secular nation in the Caspian region and an exemplary model for interfaith tolerance and harmony.
Congressmen Smith and McGovern have introduced this resolution primarily at the behest of the well-financed Armenian lobby, which pursues only one goal: to damage Azerbaijan as much as possible. The reason behind Armenian lobby's pathological hatred and racism against Azerbaijan is quite clear: Armenia still holds a considerable part of Azerbaijan's territory under occupation after expelling 800,000 Azerbaijanis from these occupied lands. And advocating for Armenia's corrupt and abusive government, the Armenian lobby in America does its best to legitimize this illegal occupation and cover up the brutal ethnic cleansing, as well as damage Azerbaijan-U.S. strategic relationship. Therefore this resolution is extremely biased and unfair towards Azerbaijan, which is the most valuable and reliable U.S. friend in a difficult neighborhood.
Considering the tremendous value and importance of the U.S.-Azerbaijan friendship as well as the biased nature of this document being heavily pushed by an ethnic special interest group, the resolution should definitely be rejected.
We urge the U.S. Congress to vehemently reject the resolution “Promoting United States national security and foreign policy objectives through consolidation and strengthening of the rule of law and respect for human rights in the Republic of Azerbaijan” that would damage first and foremost America’s own national interests.
