Judy Chu Calls for $10 Million in U.S. Aid to Artsakh

Los Angeles Times

Rep. Judy Chu (D-CA) called for $10 million in U.S. aid to Artsakh (Nagorno Karabakh) and pushed back against State Department efforts to end life-saving Artsakh demining assistance, ANCA reports.

She has called in powerful testimony offered before the House Appropriations Subcommittee on State, Foreign Operations, the body tasked to prepare the Fiscal Year 2021 Foreign Aid Bill.  Central Valley Congressman Jim Costa (D-CA) emphasized his commitment to Artsakh aid and demining efforts worldwide in separate testimony before the key aid panel, reported the Armenian National Committee of America (ANCA).

She concluded her testimony, noting, "if we are sincere in our commitment to peace, then we must support this request of $10 million, which will allow HALO to finish their work and remove the landmines and UXO that daily threaten the lives of civilians in Nagorno-Karabakh."
