"It is miserable that innocent people are suffering from conflict. I share our concern that the actions of others may harm non-participants in the war, "Senator Charles Schumer from New York told the local bureau of the Report.
"For many years, the US government has been actively involved in the peaceful settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, playing a leading role in the Minsk Group and encouraging a peaceful and negotiated settlement of the conflict between Azerbaijan and Armenia. Moreover, the United States supports the implementation of long-standing development and humanitarian assistance programs in the region.
Throughout my career, I have tried in the Senate to finance religious, economic, and peace projects implemented by the State Department and the Department of Foreign Affairs to support the people of the Nagorno-Karabakh region. I have also supported projects by the Department of Defense, the State Department, and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) to build schools in Azerbaijan, develop the country, and help people in need."
