US Congressman calls for cutting aid to Azerbaijan amid continuing aggression

Congressman Brad Sherman calls for cutting all aid to Azerbaijan until it "it ceases its aggression, renounces violence, and commits to a purely peaceful resolution of the conflict."

Below is the complete statement issued by the Senior Democrat on the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

"The Azerbaijani aggression we have seen over the last few days is deeply disappointing. There are a number of news reports indicating that more than 100 Armenians have been killed as a result. Chairman Royce and I urged that Azerbaijan use the opportunity provided by the Nuclear Security Summit to advance the peace process.

"Instead, it appears that Azerbaijan's President Aliyev launched new attacks against Nagorno-Karabakh. I strongly condemn this aggression and believe that US assistance to Azerbaijan be cut off until it ceases its aggression, renounces violence, and commits to a purely peaceful resolution of the conflict."
