World 16:36 23.05.2024

In a recent session of the House of Representatives, Armenian lobbyist and Congressman Jim Costa took a strong stance against Azerbaijan, expressing doubts about the country's trustworthiness. According to a report by Ednews, Costa urged Secretary of State Blinken to address Azerbaijan's alleged transgressions, including the purported "genocide" of local Armenians in Karabakh.

Costa emphasized his skepticism, stating, "I think Azerbaijan cannot be trusted. They have sufficiently corrupted the principles of our defense agreement." This statement underscores the deep-rooted tensions between Armenia and Azerbaijan, particularly in the aftermath of the recent conflict in Karabakh.

In response to Costa's concerns, Secretary of State Blinken stressed the importance of seeking a peace agreement as the optimal solution. Blinken emphasized that a peace accord would serve the interests of both Armenia and Azerbaijan, as well as promote stability throughout the region.

"Our main priority is the signing of a peace agreement," Blinken affirmed, highlighting the significant strides made by both sides towards achieving this goal. The statement reflects the ongoing diplomatic efforts to foster reconciliation and address longstanding conflicts in the South Caucasus.

Costa's remarks in the House of Representatives underscore the complex dynamics surrounding the Armenia-Azerbaijan relationship and the challenges facing efforts to promote peace and stability in the region. As tensions persist, diplomatic initiatives remain crucial in addressing grievances and advancing toward a durable resolution.
