Adoption of anti-Armenian resolution suspended in Kentucky
The US Kentucky state joined the states of Idaho, New Hampshire and other states where the resolutions on anti-Azerbaijani propaganda have successfully failed.
On March 7, the Kentucky State Senate suspended adoption of the Resolution No. 168 commemorating the 24th anniversary of the so-called "Khojalu tragedy”, which was misrepresenting the facts on the Artsakh conflict, reports “Armenpress” citing the ANCA office.
The resolution was not adopted after the alarm of the Armenian National Committee of Eastern Region of America on the disinformation in the state.
“The Kentucky experience again bespeaks about the fact that the legislative body members will not tolerate any distortion or interference which are beneficial for the dictator Ilham Aliyev.
Aliyev continues aggression against Armenia and Artsakh, thereby endangering the fragile peace in the region, "said Arthur Martirosyan, representative of the Armenian National Committee.
On March 1, the resolution was submitted by senator Daymon Thai to the Kentucky Senate.
Being informed about the resolution the representatives of the Armenian National Committee immediately initiated an informative campaign, urging the Senate president and the majority party leaders not to accept the dangerous resolution which distorts facts.
As a result, the state Senate officially stopped the process of the adoption of the resolution.
