Rep. Brad Sherman, D-Calif. (27th CD), issued the following news
release:

On Sunday, September 25, 2011, Congressman Brad Sherman celebrated
Armenian Independence Day with President Serzh Sargsyan and
Armenian-Americans from all across Southern California. Upon meeting
President Sagsyan, Congressman Sherman presented Sargsyan with a flag
flown over the US Capitol.

Sherman has helped lead the effort to strengthen ties between the
United States and Armenia, and continues the fight to bring the
Armenian Genocide Resolution to a successful vote on the House floor.

"I am honored to celebrate Armenia's independence alongside President
Sargsyan and so many great Armenian Americans here in California," said
Sherman. "As a senior member of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs,
I have focused on recognizing the Armenian Genocide, recognizing
the massacre of Armenian civilians in Sumgait, increasing funding to
Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh, and increasing military training aid
for Armenia despite attempts by the administration to increase aid
only to Azerbaijan." said Sherman.
