Shirvan bureau of Report informs, the US ambassador, who visited the Kurdamir region told reporters that the exact amount of the aid has not been determined yet: “According to US law, foreign aid is determined by two governing bodies - the executive and the legislative. Both government branches are involved in approving the final sum. The amount of aid has not been determined yet. The Congress continues discussions on the amount of aid.
