ANCA calls US Congress to support the bill of $ 70 mln aid to Armenia and Artsakh

ANCA calls US Congress to support the bill of   $ 70 mln aid   to  Armenia and Artsakh

ArmInfo. In a letter circulated  for signatures today to their U.S.  House colleagues, the  Congressional Armenian Caucus is calling upon Chairman Hal Rogers  (R-KY) and Ranking Member Nita Lowey (D-NY) of the Appropriations  Subcommittee on Foreign Operations to back a $70 million Fiscal Year  2019 aid package for Artsakh and Armenia, reported the Armenian  National Committee of America (ANCA).

"We want to thank Congressman Pallone and his colleagues in the  leadership of the Armenian Caucus for seeking the support of their  U.S. House colleagues for a 'peace and prosperity,' aid package for  Artsakh and Armenia," said ANCA Executive Director Aram Hamparian.   "The common sense policy prescriptions and targeted appropriations  they are calling for will return long-term dividends for U.S.  security and economic interests while helping to advance American  values across the region for decades to come." The dollar amounts and  policy priorities requested by the Armenian Caucus, which annually  spearheads bipartisan efforts to secure support for Armenian-related  aid appropriation, align with ANCA testimony submitted last month to  the Senate panel writing the foreign aid bill:  -- Artsakh: $6  million to complete de-mining and rehabilitate the disabled, $4  million to promote peace via the Royce-Engel proposals;-- Armenia:  $30 million in economic aid, $10 million in military aid, and $20  million to help Armenia serve as a safe haven for Middle East  refugees;-- Azerbaijan: Suspend all U.S.  military assistance and  strengthen Section 907 of the FREEDOM Support Act The ANCA has also  called upon Congressional appropriators to encourage the Trump  Administration to make full use of the U.S.-Armenia Trade and  Investment Framework Agreement (TIFA) and Economic Task Force, and,  most urgently, to move forward with the long-overdue negotiation of a  modern U.S.  Armenia Double Tax Treaty.
