ANCA Chairman advances 360-degree community priorities during two-days of meetings in nation’s capital


WASHINGTON—The Armenian National Committee of America held a constructive discussion regarding Armenian American policy priorities this week with Deputy Assistant Secretary of State George Kent. During meeting on April 10 at the U.S. Department of State, ANCA Chairman Raffi Hamparian – joined by ANCA Programs Director Tereza Yerimyan and ANCA Eastern U.S. Executive Director Aram Balian – raised a number of issues, including:



  • Realizing the mutual benefits of a post-Velvet Revolution strategic upgrade in U.S.-Armenia political, economic, and military relations

  • Strengthening the Artsakh cease-fire, removing barriers to U.S.-Artsakh dialogue, and expanding the U.S. aid program to Artsakh.

  • Ending U.S. complicity in Turkey’s denial of the Armenian Genocide through honest American remembrance of this crime against humanity.


The talks were part of a two-day series of Congressional and State Department meetings timed with the annual Capitol Hill commemoration of the Armenian Genocide, held at the historic Hart Senate Office building on April 9, 2019. Congressional Armenian Caucus leaders and supporters emphasized the importance of swift passage of newly introduced Senate and Armenian Genocide legislation (H.Res.396 and S.Res.150), which call for a permanent U.S. policy of proper Armenian Genocide remembrance and recognition, ending U.S. complicity in Turkey’s denial of that crime and, promoting broad-based public Armenian Genocide education to prevent future atrocities.
