Chester County, October 20, 2020
CHESTER COUNTY, PA – Today, Representative Chrissy Houlahan (D-PA) issued the following statement:
“I condemn in the fullest terms the ongoing military violence perpetrated by Azerbaijan, aided and abetted by Turkey, against the ethnic Armenians in Nagorno-Karabakh,” said Houlahan. “The United States has and must continue to support a peaceful, democratic, and negotiated resolution to the dispute surrounding the Nagorno Karabakh region. In Congress, I have advocated for security assistance funding for the Republic of Armenia as well as the Armenian people in Nagorno-Karabakh. This funding is now even more crucial as we witness these acts of violence. I applaud the State Department’s effort to honor our commitment to Armenia and to work toward a diplomatic solution. We must act with haste to prevent any more loss of life. I urge the countries to commit to a ceasefire immediately.”
Houlahan is an Air Force veteran, an engineer, a serial entrepreneur, an educator, and a nonprofit leader. She’s in her first term representing Pennsylvania’s 6th Congressional District, which encompasses Chester County and southern Berks County. She serves on the House Armed Services Committee, the House Foreign Affairs Committee, and the House Small Business Committee.
