On July 18, Vice Chair of the House Democratic Caucus Katherine Clark (MA-5) met with President of the National Assembly of Armenia Ararat Mirzoyan, head of the My Step Alliance faction in the National Assembly, Lilit Makunts, and a member of the National Assembly, Edmon Marukyan at the House Democracy Partnership Leadership Forum in the US Capitol, which was hosted by Rep. Frank Pallone (NJ-6).
Clark represents one of the largest Armenian populations in the United States, and she spoke with these three prominent leaders about the priorities of the Armenian-American community.
“My district is home to one of the largest Armenian communities in America, and today, I had the privilege of meeting key leaders from the National Assembly of Armenia,” she said. “I commend the Government of Armenia for their commitment to a peaceful resolution of the conflict in Artsakh, and I believe that respectful dialogue is the best way to bring about peace. I will continue to prioritize the issues of the Armenian-American community and work to address deforestation, recognize the Armenian genocide, and pursue economic expansion.”
