Sen. Menendez: ‘Top Priority Must Be to Address Threats Armenia Continues to Face’


WASHINGTON ( — US Sen. Bob Menendez (D-N.J.) on November 13 delivered remarks on the Senate floor against the Armenian humanitarian crisis, and called for Congress to end support for the Azerbaijani government that perpetuated this assault.

“Wherever assaults are launched without warning whether it’s Russia’s unprovoked war in Ukraine, Azerbaijan’s invasion of Nagorno-Karabakh, or Hamas’ barbaric terrorist attack on Israel we must always stand with our allies as they seek justice for victims in a way that upholds human rights and follows the laws of war,” Sen. Menendez said, in particular, from the Senate floor. “The eyes of the world are watching how the United States responds to these conflicts. And as we have done so many times before, we must leverage our position as a moral authority for good in order to deliver necessary aid to the affected regions.”

“I submit to my colleagues that our top priority must be to stand in the breach and address the threats that Armenia continues to face,” Bob Menendez stressed.
