The US Congress refused to allocate funds for 2016 to the separatist regime of Nagorno-Karabakh

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe US Congress refused to allocate funds for 2016 to the separatist regime of Nagorno-Karabakh.

The law on “General payments” for 2016, approved by the Congress and undersigned by US President Barack Obama came into force December 18.

The law did not include any point, envisaging the allocation of funds to the occupied territories of Azerbaijan.

The US Congress has not included a clause to the law concerning any financial assistance to the occupied territories of Azerbaijan since 2014. This item was included in the law in 1998-2013.

Armenia occupied over 20 percent of Azerbaijan’s internationally recognized territory, including Nagorno-Karabakh and seven adjacent regions, after laying territorial claims against its South Caucasus neighbor that caused a brutal war in the early 1990s.

Following the invasion of Nagorno-Karabakh, Armenia established a separatist regime in the occupied territories and strives for recognition of the puppet regime from the international community.

As a result of the military aggression of Armenia, over 20,000 Azerbaijanis were killed, 4,866 are reported missing, almost 100,000 were injured, and 50,000 were disabled.

Long-standing efforts by U.S., Russian, and French mediators have been largely fruitless so far. The UN Security Council has passed four resolutions on the Armenian withdrawal from Azerbaijani territory, but they have not been enforced to this day.
