Biden calls on Trump to take actions to stop war in NK conflict zone
YEREVAN, OCTOBER 29, ARMENPRESS. US presidential candidate Joe Biden has called on President Donald Trump to take actions to stop the Nagorno Karabakh conflict.
Biden released a statement.
“Following the collapse of the ceasefire announced by Secretary of State Pompeo on October 25, a large-scale humanitarian disaster is looming for the people of Nagorno Karabakh, who have already suffered too much and need to have their security protected. After a month of fighting, it is long past time for President Trump to directly engage the leaders of Armenia, Azerbaijan, and Turkey to push for immediate de-escalation and stop the advance of Azerbaijani troops into Nagorno Karabakh. While he brags about his deal-making skills at campaign rallies, Trump has yet to get involved personally to stop this war. The administration must fully implement and not waive requirements under section 907 of the Freedom Support Act to stop the flow of military equipment to Azerbaijan”, the statement says.
Biden called on to stop fueling the conflict with the supply of weapons and, in the case of Turkey, mercenaries.
“The United States should be leading a diplomatic effort to end the fighting, together with our European partners, and push for international humanitarian assistance to end the suffering; under my administration that is exactly what we will do”, Biden said.
