US Azeris ask the Senate to state Azerbaijan’s integrity

01 August 2011 [11:46] - TODAY.AZ
The Azeri Diaspora in the US started a new campaign asking the Senate to state Azerbaijan’s territorial integrity, APA’s Washington DC correspondent reports.

The US Senate passed the resolution 175, which recognizes Georgia’s territorial integrity, and considers Abkhazia and South Ossetia as occupied regions of Georgia just recently and therefore the US Azeris think “that a similar resolution must be passed for Azerbaijan as well, recognizing Azerbaijani territorial integrity and recognizing Karabakh region as an occupied territory of Azerbaijan”, says the statement.

The USAN asks Diaspora members and friends to send a letter to the appropriate officials asking to accept such a resolution.

“We are writing in regards to the July 29 passage of Senate Resolution 175, which was "Expressing the sense of the Senate with respect to ongoing violations of the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Georgia and the importance of a peaceful and just resolution to the conflict within Georgia’s internationally recognized borders", and kindly request that a similar resolution be passed about "Expressing the sense of the Senate with respect to ongoing violations of the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Azerbaijan and the importance of a peaceful and just resolution to the conflict within Azerbaijan’s internationally recognized borders".
