Congressman David G. Valadao and Co-Chairs of the Congressional Caucus on Armenian Issues Pen Letter to Secretary Blinken Raising Concerns Over Section 907 Waiver for Azerbaijan

The alternative - continuing to ship U.S. military aid to Baku despite its ongoing anti-Armenian aggression - sends Aliyev the green light to escalate his attacks."
