Chairman of the US Educated Azerbaijani Alumni Association Nail Akhundzade sent a letter to Ambassador of US in Azerbaijan Lee Litzenberger, Trend reports.
"We the US Educated Azerbaijani Alumni have always taken pride and a pleasure of being ambassadors of the US culture and values in Azerbaijan and unanimously share an uncompromised and strong belief that our voice matters, in both Azerbaijan and the US. This belief stems from the dedicated support and encouragement we have always received from the US State Department and the US Embassy in Baku. Confiding in that belief, we decided to write this open letter directly to you," the letter said.
"Mr. Ambassador, as you are aware, as of September 27, 2020 - the day when the Republic of Armenia started its military aggression against the Republic of Azerbaijan - we have to wake up every day with an alarming and saddening news of innocent civilian people losing their lives and being hurt and wounded in Azerbaijan. Additionally, despite the signed humanitarian ceasefire, the Armenian Army continues the shelling of civilian targets in Azerbaijani cities of Ganja, Terter, Fuzuli, Aghdam and Mingachevir. As a result, civilians, including children and women are being killed, injured and many civilian facilities are being destroyed," the letter said.
"Sadly, though, this outrageous illegal behavior of Armenia does not get enough coverage in the US media and political circles. Rather, we often see biased, infatuated statements by US media and politicians on the nature of the Nagorno Karabakh conflict and on the identification of the true aggressor. Using the opportunity, we wish to ask you to support us with communication of our position at the U.S State Department and Congress as outlined in the attached Summary. We thank you in advance for your time and efforts in advance and looking forward to hear from you soon. We wish you a nice week, strength and inspiration for the noble work you are doing in Azerbaijan!" the letter said.
