A group of the US Congressmen, including Republicans and Democrats, urged to increase aid to Armenia, Karabakh and Javakheti. The document notes the need to maintain "the Armenian-American strategic relations through economic development and security assistance", IA Regnum reported.
In particular, the document points to the need for assistance to Nagorno-Karabakh in the amount of at least $ 5 million, allocating $ 50 million as aid to Armenia, as well as increasing target financing to Georgia for the creation of additional jobs in the Armenian region of Samtskhe-Javakheti.
