PanARMENIAN.Net - U.S. Representatives Gary Peters (D-MI), Howard
Berman (D-CA), Anna Eshoo (D-CA), Adam Schiff (D-CA), and have offered
U.S. House floor statements over the past week marking Azerbaijan's
pogroms and massacres against ethnic Armenian civilians in Sumgait,
Kirovabad, and Baku, reported the Armenian National Committee of
America (ANCA).

These four legislators join with Rep. Frank Wolf (R-VA), the
Co-Chairman of the Congressional Human Rights Caucus, and Judy Chu
(D-CA), who made Congressional statements regarding these massacres
earlier this month, and with Congressman David Cicilline (D-RI),
who issued a public statement this week marking these human rights
atrocities.

"We join with friends of Armenia and advocates of human rights from
California, Michigan, Rhode Island, Virginia and across America in
thanking each of Members of Congress who has joined with Armenians
worldwide in marking the Sumgait, Kirovabad, and Baku pogroms,"
said ANCA Executive Director Aram Hamparian. "In pausing to remember
these atrocities we reaffirm our commitment to challenging Azerbaijan's
aggression and threats of renewed war, and, more broadly, to protecting
the innocent and promoting peace for all the peoples of the Caucasus
region."
