The Daily Caller: Members of Congress Broke Law of US Ally by Illegally Visiting Nagorno-Karabakh
Members of Congress broke the law of the US ally by illegally visiting Nagorno-Karabakh, said an article by Raoul Lowery Contreras published in The Daily Caller.
“If Pallone, Valadao and Gabbard say they want to improve American economic and cultural relations with Armenia, that hardly passes the smell test. The CIA World Factbook ranks it number 138 in world economies below Zimbabwe (133), Papua New Guinea (134), and is slightly above Haiti in rank (147). By way of comparison, Mexico is ranked number 20,” said the author.
The article said that there are compelling reasons why members of Congress should not visit any part of Azerbaijan without permission: Nagorno-Karabakh is a part of Azerbaijan; to visit there without Azerbaijan’s permission can and did result in being “blacklisted” by a legitimate government for an illegitimate visit; Azerbaijan is a military ally of the United States, while Armenia is not and Azerbaijan not only has soldiers in Afghanistan, it gave air transit rights and support to American forces in route to Afghanistan, while Armenia did not.
The Anti-Defamation League has ranked Armenia as the second most anti-Semitic country in Europe, added the author.
